You will need to contact homes dot com to take your home off. I really don't think people rely on these estimates. I have found that many homes are off on the estimated values here and other sites like this one. Buyers will go to their agent for a comparable market analysis to get a more accurate valve. If you had an appraisal done in the last 3 months, you can post that on the notes next to your home on this site.
Some sites pull tax assessments and recent area sales and post a number on the sites. The Sale's price should always be correct, but if it not, that is what you should be worried about.
I recently went to the Washington DC area to help a buyer find a home and the assessments are $100,000 to $150,000 below what the homes are appraising and selling for. The old saying is still true about property and homes, it is about Location, Location, Location.
I hope this helps and Good luck to you.
David, the Johnson County Appraisal, which many sites use for their record search has the property at $382,400. Wherever this site took it's information from, it had you lower. Homes dot com does not do independent valuation. You can certainly ask them to remove your property, but as long as it's for sale, sites like this one or Yahoo real estate will use public records to try to assign a value to it. Your Yahoo listing shows a tax valuation from 2010 of $331,500, and your asking price of $440,000. Good luck with your sale.
David, a site like this one or zillow or homegain gets it's values from various places. In some states, the values are not even regarded public record so the only true place to get an accurate value is from an appraiser. A REALTOR®, with access to your local MLS can pull comparable sales and come pretty close to what an appraiser would say, but sites like the ones I've mentioned, do not put any data in manually...it's all pulled from whatever "source" they have to provide that information...right or wrong. Anyone actually looking for a legitimate value of a home would go to one of the sources I mentioned and not a site like I listed...I wouldn't worry too much about what this site or that site says about your "value" unless it's the tax authority (and you WANT your value to be low, right!?). It's frustrating to many, but as is the case with a lot of the internet, it's ripe with BAD information.
