Homebuyers MUST Validate Home Values at Self-directed Sites. Homequant Pioneers!

Instead of either accepting some model-driven estimates from online brokerage sites (we all know those estimates are not explainable) or blindly relying on salespeople's comps, prospective homebuyers MUST do their own validations at Self-directed Sites.

A Self-directed Site will allow users to go through the valuation process in a step-by-step manner via the following FOUR steps:

1. Defining the Subject:  Subject property data from Public Records is often unreliable. As a homeowner, you know your home better than any such records. In Self-directed Sites, you can define/enter your own home data, without being forced to accept the data from Public Records. Here is an example of the basic subject data that you would be entering into a Self-directed system...

2.  Selecting Comps:  A list of sales - by default - does not become comps; nor do some cute model-derived estimates provide true home values. Comps - however close they are to the subject - require proper selection and adjustments. In a Self-directed Site you will get to enter your own comp selection and adjustment criteria. Here is an example...



3. Ensuring Proper Location:  The concept of Spatial comps (picking comps right off the map) is always a better way as it helps avoid picking comps from the "other side of the freeway" which could be a pricier economic neighborhood, thus inflating the value of your subject. Here is an example...


4. Understanding Final Value:  A statistically significant range, say 25th to 75th percentile, is a more meaningful way to understand comps-based subject valuation than one unique parameter.  Here is an example...

The concept of "User-defined Subject" Helps the Valuation Community at large. Homequant Establishes!


Often, the Valuation Entrepreneurs fail to make inroads into the Valuation business due to the high cost of the unsold population data which tends to be about 95% of the entire population. 

1. Because of Homequant's discovery of the "User-defined Subject" those entrepreneurs can jump into the business now, knowing full well that the sold data alone, generally available free of cost or for a token price from the taxing jurisdictions directly, would do the trick, without having to invest a fortune in acquiring and warehousing the unsold data which, in terms of quality, is questionable at best, to begin with.  
 

2. Additionally, unlike an institutional client, an average home buyer – in Free Home Valuation industry where Homequant is positioned – is generally interested in valuing a handful of subject properties so researching and capturing such data tend to further motivate those users.  

The President of Homequant recently explained their invention: “There are roughly 90 million single family homes in the US and, on average, 5% of that universe annually sells. By inventing the concept of the defined or simulated subject, we are able to value those 95% unsold properties by storing only the 5% sold data. The home valuation industry will soon recognize the significance of our invention.”
