Thanks for all the replys…I am just looking for a rough idea of value. For example. A house I was dealing with was valued at 185k ARV on zillow. I rounded it down to 120k ARV. I think that would have been acurate but the deal never went through. Anyway…thanks for all your responses I was just curious

I was curious if anyone knows about how accurate is? Is it close enough to give a rough number to work with for quick flips? Thanks in advance.

There are sites that will give you very accurate comps, but you have to pay for them. Relators can give you accurate comps from the MLS, if they are not obstinent and will do so. They seem to consider it their own private reserve. All most all the other free sites I have seen are subject to question. Some counties in some states will give youl comp sales free. Good Luck Jack

I read an article on MSN that compared many of the different AVM (Automated Valuation Model) type sites. The main focus of the article was that even the highest rated site was accurate only 50% of the time. I believe that site was My suggestion would be to use those sites only to give you a very rough idea as to the value.

NO. I have found that it can be off be thousands. IN each way. Do your due diligience and pay for the comps. Try ‘’… You will pay per report but it will give you better info for hard money lenders if you want to go that route.
