I'm a licensed REALTOR in your area and our MLS is called TREND. As some of the other members have answered, you'd need to list your property for sale (or rent) through an agent. Feel free to contact me if you haven't already selected an agent.

Why such a huge discrepancy you ask?

Well, that's because both sites use computers and mathematical equations along with public records to generate their estimates......computers can be right, and they can be wrong. Each site's mathematical algorithms may vary and are based on their own site's use of the stats.

Nothing can beat an actual live person viewing the property and selecting accurate comps that will help reflect the real market value of the home....

I believe that to relist the property would be counter productive. The cold hard truth is there are many beautiful listings in the area for sale in a similar price range, and in order to stand out to a buyer you must be seen as the best value. If your property is in good condition and looking the best it can, aggressive price drops will be the most obvious and fastest way to attract a buyer. Re-evaluate every two weeks; if you are not getting the traffic (number of appointments) you wish to get, it most likely is because buyers are not finding the best value in your home. That being said, professional photographs and a virtual tour will make it show best on the internet. But nothing will get it sold faster than pricing it right!

You need to call a realtor TODAY! What are you waiting for? A tax lien is not something you want on your property. The agent will not be paid until closing and you could offer the house at a great price. If it is worth $200k, then offer it for $180k with an acceptable contract to close by September 1st.
