Quick Home Valuation on Your Cell

Posted in Financial,House Hunting,technology by Jeff Dowler on October 12, 2007


Buyers, and those who are simply curious, often want to know about the value of homes they see.

For those with cell phones (that’s, like 99.99% of you isn’t it?) you can simply TEXT MESSAGE HouseFront and within a few seconds you will have the estimated value plus the sales history of the home you are interested in (not every home is listed yet – the service is only a few months old).

BTW HouseFront is 46873.

Keep in mind this is an ESTIMATE and may not actually reflect the true value of the home. Just as Zillow may underestimate or overestimate, HouseFront should just be used as part of the data collection in determining the true value. 

Ask your REALTOR to help you – that will give you the best sense of what a home is valued at in this market. If you are just curious, HouseFront is fine, but don’t make a buying (or selling) decision on this information.
