Agreed - your agent is your best source because she does have access to the MLS. Guiding you through the analysis is an important part of her job. I can't imagine any reason not to use the services of the best agent you can find, particularly in this rugged market.

Arm yourself with the knowledge and skill that a good agent brings to the table and you will do much better than trying to go it alone.

Use a REALTOR® for the most accurate and up to date comps! Zillow should not be considered in any way!

Well it looks like you received many great answers and they all have pertinent information. There is not a site that can give you accurate information since Texas is a non-disclosure state. Realtors can do that for you and there is no cost for them to do that for you. However, they will want to represent you in the purchase of a home. I would suggest using a realtor so your interests are protected. Good luck and I hope you allow the realtor community to serve you.

We live in a non disclosure state. Ask your Realtor for the comps. If you don't have one, I can help.

There isn't one. The "public" sites out there are based on erroneous information and data - from tax records and other sources that do not reflect true "current" market value. Most of the data from places like Zillow and others often times is "old" data and is not accurate. This is why you need to hire a Realtor !
Real Estate Agents pay good money to have a subscription to your local MLS. Only subscribers to the MLS
can get "current" market data. Many agents will compile a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) for you free of charge. I know of one local site to request such information. http://www.todaysdallasmarket.com
You simply type in your information and the "subject" property and a report will be sent to you via e-mail.

Your trusted Realtor. Zillow can give you comps but they can not interpret those for you.

I don't think there is one in Texas.
You might use an average of tax valuation, Zillow, and Finest Expert, but in the end they are just as often way off as they are on. Can be way high, can be way low. You just never know from one house to the next. I don't think any are very good or accurate indicators of market value.

If you are buying let your realtor do this for you.
