Chase customers can take advantage of home value comps reports offered online but as accurate as one from your local relator because they’re done by a local agent. Chase offers a home estimator on its website but even they call it an estimator. When you’re talking about a purchase thats usually six figures you need a more accurate assessment of a home’s value as 5 – 10% off could cost you tens of thousands over the duration of your mortgage.
Chase’s estimator notes this on the page “THE ACCURACY OF THE VALUATIONS ARE ESTIMATED BASED ON AVAILABLE DATA AND DO NOT CONSTITUTE AN APPRAISAL OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND SHOULD NOT BE RELIED UPON IN LIEU OF UNDERWRITING OR AN APPRAISAL.” So they’re basically saying here is a guess but don’t put money on it being accurate.
Zillow, Trulia all offer estimates on a home’s value with little context about the neighborhood or the home. They rely on reports from open records but those aren’t even available in about half the states they cover.
