Cool Property Websites

Free House Value Sites
  • Cyberhomes
    From Fidelity National Financial, this site is fairly information rich. Find comps, get charts, maps, and graphs. This one stands out most with its heat maps and buy/sell indicator charts. You can also refine the value that is determined by adding improvements, correcting square footage, and more.
    They will send you the market value of your home as determined by local realtors. Note: You need to provide contact info to get your report.
  • Eppraisal
    Website that searches for other comparable properties in your area and determines a price value range for your home. It looks like the goal is to become a marketing engine for local realtors, though. Although not as feature rich as some of the others, this site is still useful. To use this free service, just enter your address.
  • Home Smart Reports
    Offers free house value engine including property information, nearby sales with map, and a neighborhood summary. For only a few dollars, you can get a much more advanced report with risk analysis, many more comps, and other statistical charts.
  • Property Shark
    Property shark provides public data on a property, recent sales, sale history, and comparables. No need to provide your contact info, either.
  • Real Estate ABC
    Find instant home comps for any property. This site provides maps, and property value ranges that you can adjust based on sevaral criteria. You can also pick and choose the properties to include as comps.

    Like many of the others, this site offers maps (with great aerial photos), shows many comparable home sales, and has market trends (showing things like % of renters and vacancies in the area). In addition, you can use the site to review the properties and make unsolicited offers on any home.
    Find the Zestimate of any property's worth using comparable data. Zillow mashes this data up with Google maps so you can see what other properties in the area are worth as well. Includes property info, charts of property worth over time, and value ranges. The site lets you refine a property's value, like Cyberhomes, by adding improvements and changing other details about the property. You can also use the site to list a property for sale.
