You could go to Zillow and get an AVM (Automated Valuation Model) price immediately. Unfortunately, Zillow says “It is not an appraisal and it should be used as a starting point. We encourage buyers, sellers, and homeowners to supplement the Zestimate with other research such as visiting the home, getting a professional appraisal of the home, or requesting a comparative market analysis (CMA) from a real estate agent.” At best Zillow claims to get within 5 percent of the selling price only about 50 percent of the time.

Even Zillow’s CEO, Spencer Rascoff, sold his home for 40 percent less than the Zestimate showed in 2016.

When was the last time Zillow walked through your house, pulled relevant comparables and did adjustments to establish a range of value? Zillow bases it’s AVM on public and user-submitted data, taking into account home facts, location and market conditions. Again only a starting point.
