Home Value Estimators Are Now More Accessible to Real Estate Brokers and Agents

Easy-to-use real estate automated value model provides lead generation opportunities and fair estimates for homeowners online

SAN DIEGO, United States - December 7, 2017 /MarketersMedia/ —

Data technology company Home Junction has been evolving its automated value model (AVM) to adapt to changes in the market over the last 20 years. Since the 1980s, the market has changed from a heavy reliance on traditional media, such as print and direct mail, to digital media. As more consumers look to the internet for real estate knowledge and information on local brokers or agents, there is a rise in competition on the web. To get the attention of potential clients, brokers are faced with the task of creating integrated marketing strategies and using media like email, social media, and paid ads to generate and nurture leads.

Home Junction announces the release of its AVM plugin, which can now be installed on a realtor’s website as a WordPress plugin or as a standalone portal on any platform. Though Home Junction’s AVM has been in commercial use for at least two decades, it is now available as a more convenient and affordable option for web use. The tool is designed with easy installation and a smooth user and host experience in mind.

To get an estimate on what their home may be worth, users can input their address into the AVM search engine on a broker’s website and instantly receive a report to their email inbox. They will also be able to manipulate different features of the home, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The resulting home valuation report will give users a price range and ranking on their home, based on data from public records such as tax polls, recent neighborhood sales activity, and MLS data.

Home value estimator tools are driving factors in lead generation strategies for the modern real estate industry. These engines can be customized to ask for the user’s contact information. Typically, home value estimators will ask for the email address of the person who will receive the report, and it can ask for the name and contact phone number associated as well. This data can give the realtor the information they need to market their services to these potential sellers. For the broker, the AVM will be able to send a daily report regarding its searches. This data can then help brokers convert those website leads into clients through a more targeted marketing strategy.

“Individual brokers and smaller real estate firms can utilize this powerful tool without needing a large investment as required by AVMs of the past,” Home Junction Senior Vice President Ed Kim said. “Providing access to these resources allows realtors to compete on a more level playing field against large, mega-firms.”

With Home Junction’s AVM plugin, more accessible data can be the keys to building up a broker’s reputation and creating an active lead generation marketing program. By reporting on potential leads, brokers can personalize their communications and have a better position when looking at their presence in the market. With a plugin that is easy to install, Home Junction is making home valuation more widely accessible for users and brokers.

Israel at 70: Satisfaction and grim disquiet share the stage

Apr 19, 2018

JERUSALEM — Is Israel a success as it turns 70? As Israelis commemorate the milestone this week, satisfaction and a grim disquiet share the stage. It has a standard of living that rivals Western Europe, though it lacks significant natural resources. It can boast of scientific achievements and military and technological clout beyond its modest size. It controls most of biblical Israel, and despite widespread criticism of its policies toward the Palestinians, it has cultivated good diplomatic ties with most of the world. But it's also a country that is weary from decades of conflict with the Palestinians. It is...
