Recently, a member of the Bigelow Group heard a commercial for a website purporting to provide the value of a home to anyone who went to the website and entered the information requested, including an email address. After all the information was submitted, the website responded by saying my colleague would be contacted by a real estate professional in the area who would give him a market value of his home.
In other words, the website was using the homeowner’s interest in the value of their home to generate prospects for a real estate agent who is most likely paying the website a hefty fee to generate leads.
Note: The website itself never did provide a value for the home.
If you are interested in learning the value of your home, you can go to such a website or you can contact me Jim Bigelow at 918-640-4657 or email@example.com. There is not a charge or obligation for this service. I know home values in the neighborhood. I can also give you the most accurate value for your home because I will look at your home and evaluate it based on its features, condition and location within the neighborhood. Finally, the information will come from a trained, knowledgeable associate who is familiar with homes in the area. I think you will find the information more reliable and the experience more enjoyable.
