I am going to disagree with some of my colleagues below. Zillow's patented Zestimate is NOT always accurate and prices of active listings from flyer boxes are NOT comparables, they are your competitors.
Having been born and raised in Burlington County (I now live in the Haddonfield area), I am intimately familiar with the Bordentown/Columbus area and would be happy to prepare a CMA for you. There is no cost for this.
The way it would work is you would email me your address so we may begin a dialogue. I will reply with a list of questions. Then we will set up a time for me to do an in-home consultation. I am available days, evenings and weekends.
A little bit about me: I am a Broker and am licensed in NJ and PA. My firm is a luxury real estate company, but we are permitted to handle ALL price ranges --- you would simply get luxury service! We have our own marketing department and it is world class.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

A Realtor can get you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for you. The Realtor will compare your home to similar homes that sold in the neighborhood in last 6 months. We can sit down with you and go over all the options for you at that time.
If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to call me at 609-410-9573
Good luck to you,

The term comparative market analysis is done typically by realtors in order to determine a price point for selling a home. Data is pulled of comparable homes in the area and adjustments are made to narrow the price point. It is not an accurate science, however, it is useful and informative in determining whether to place your home on the market.
I am familiar with the Columbus area. I actually travel there quite often. If you are interested in having one done, feel free to contact me. Any realtor will be able to help with this request.
Best of Luck!
If it was an easy task, you wouldn't need us at all!
If you don't have access to the MLS, then the simplest thing to do is to have a Realtor do a CMA (competitive market analysis) for your property.
As for Zillow and Zestimates: They're fun. They're entertaining. They're amusing. They're worthless. I'm absolutely amazed that any professional would even suggest that. Take a look at Zillow's own statistics on its likely accuracy for different areas. It'll be something like: "50% of the time we're within 10% of the real value of the property." OK. Let's say your home is worth $300,000. Half the time, the Zestimate will come back between $270,000 and $330,000. The other half of the time, it'll be outside that range. That's not very reassuring. And why don't you take a look at the questions posted on Zillow? (I do; I answer a lot there, too.) Notice that the majority of them are folks complaining about their Zestimates.
Hope that helps.
Maybe you can take a look at the 'value' displayed on the tax assessors website.
Grab the flyer from the Info Box in front of the homes for sale on your street. Adjust value based on size and assets.
Check the homes sold in the real estate section of your local newspaper.
Visit franchise websites such as ReMax.com for comparable values.
Visit Realtor.com for comparable values.
Even Bank of America will generate a number labeled Market Value.
For the life of me I can't understand why you wouldn't call the folks who do this on a daily basis and will, in the overwhelming number of instances, provide you a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis. But if actionable data is NOT required, and this is more for entertainment purposes...use the resources in the first paragraph.
