ST. LOUIS – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties has introduced a Select Home Estimator service, which allows consumers to enter any U.S. address to “click and see” local and national home value estimates on both the company’s and 550 agents’ websites, as well as a more detailed and comprehensive report used by lenders to estimate home values for mortgages.
Estimates from the innovative Select Home Estimator feature are free and do not require registration.
Consumers can visit www.bhhsselectstl.com to find a local home value, after which they can register for the Interactive-Automated Valuation Model (I-AVM) — a more comprehensive market analysis report — by submitting their name and email address. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties is the first brokerage in Metro St. Louis to provide the analytics tools to consumers.
“The results of typical national real estate websites have been primarily based on tax records. We chose Collateral Analytics for their higher accuracy rate in home values,” said Maryann Vitale Alles, president and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties. “The Select Home Estimator provides a more accurate perspective of local market trends. Consumers will receive not only a value estimate and a value range, but have the opportunity to work with an agent to access the more in-depth I-AVM report that provides them with additional data from Public Records and tax records — including last sale price and date — comparable properties and local housing trends.”
Formed in 2002, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties has nine offices throughout the St. Louis Metropolitan area. The company was formerly Prudential Select Properties.
