When selling your home, one of the first things you need to do is determine value. Real estate agents who are familiar with your market are one of the best sources and can provide a thorough Competitive Market Analysis (CMA). There are also various websites you can go to that provide automated home valuations, but these sites have extreme limitations on both accuracy and personal input.
They typically use computer-generated algorithms to estimate home values but, of course, are extremely lacking in insights regarding individual homes and neighborhoods. ChalkBug solves these problems.
ChalkBug is a unique patent-pending application that puts the power of home valuation into the hands of the homeowner.
Designed by a nationally recognized real estate agent, with a background in application development, ChalkBug increases accuracy of home valuation by enabling those most familiar with their homes and neighborhoods to create their own set of comparables and perform their own valuation analysis.
“We designed ChalkBug to replicate the methodology that I have been using for the past 14 years in my real estate business to help my clients estimate home values. Now, the public can have access to the same tools and data,” said Therese Swan, a top producing agent out of Alain Pinel Realtors’ Los Gatos office. Swan has been nationally ranked in The Wall Street Journal/RealTrends Top 250 Individual Agents in the United States and is also among the Top 100 Agents in the San Francisco Bay Area.
