You can't trust ANY website for an accurate valuation. It's hard enough to estimate value for a HUMAN, and next to impossible for a computer. Sometimes the computer gets it right, but that is only because it got lucky with the comps. Valuing property takes common sense, which computers do not yet possess (and neither do many humans).

You can still split the loan in 2. I can offer a 1st mortgage at $417,000 with a fixed rate 2nd mortgage up to $150,000.
