How To Change Your HomesEstimate

Sometimes The HomesEstimate is wrong.

We’re not afraid to admit it! Our HomesEstimate can’t see the presentation of your house, whether it’s had a kitchen remodel or a fresh coat of paint. That’s alright, we’re not looking to be the authority on market value (although sometimes we like to celebrate getting it bang on).

We understand an incorrect value is frustrating

So we’ve made it easy to change by using our agent appraisal tool, or by submitting a registered valuation.  Here’s a step-by-step guide.

1

First of all, you’ll need to login or register. It’s pretty easy if you haven’t signed up with us yet, just enter your email and a preferred password.

 

2

Then claim your home! Simply search your address on www.homes.co.nz, open the property page & click “claim” down the bottom.

Once you receive your market appraisal from an agent you can upload it via the “Upload Valuation” space. There you have it! It’s as easy as that. Next month the uploaded valuation or appraisal will influence the HomesEstimate. Worth noting, your HomesEstimate doesn’t perfectly reflect the valuation, but it will bring it closer. So if you’re selling we don’t make public your agents expected value.
