Make your own website more sticky with a free Value Estimator

I have published a free Java Script that will allow you to give site visitors an instant value for their property.  It is a strict math function based on assessed values.  You can customize it, personalize it, and adjust it for your particular area.  (And yes, it is as incorrect as you find on the big sites. LOL.)

I hate those calls that say, "I don't want you to come look, just give me a value over the phone," or when the customer says "I saw on-line that my property is worth...".  This simple code lets you provide the answer for Internet surfers who have a curiosity for bad math calculations.

This calcuator is just as incorrect as other online estimators, but it will be on your site so the surfer can stay on your pages.

WOW!  You could give Zillow a run for their money.  This is so funny.  I think I would included a disclaimer like Zillow that estimates that their value estimates are off by, what is it?  5-20% or something?

Thank you for the tip.  I just tested the version included on the second link and determined the multiple factor used was 1.09 instead of 1.35.   It is definitively something that would get most visitors curious enough to try.  I wonder how many would call to ask the details of how the estimate was calculated and perhaps generate some good leads.

Thanks Heath, though I already have one on my IDX site, I can always use this on my active rain site.

Hi Heath - You have my interest as well.  I've copied the code and will try it out on my web site.  You are right; it may just generate calls and be a good potential for leads.
