I feel your pain, Joshua. The fact is, a home estimate website is a computer running an algorithm that can't take into account the whole picture. It's not intentionally undervaluing your property, it just cannot take into account the full picture. Even as a Realtor, nearby current listings are only a part of the comparables. Recent sales and expired listings also must be considered when coming up with a value estimate, not to mention condition, features, etc.

Long story short - ignore any online value. At best it's a ballpark figure, at worst totally misleading and inaccurate. No educated buyer will even bother with an online value - it's part of my client education too show just how misleading these can be.

Ive only been here in Ohio for 5 years, but I would have to say that theres an interesting culture in Highland Square. I spend many nights out down there...

Alot of new developments have taking place there, New Library, Culture Center ( I think its called -- Also great looking building), Places to eat (Chipotle, Metro Burger, Pizza place) Many Fun Bars to go to, Coffe shops , Theatre etc.. Really makes you feel like your part of the area immediatly once you spend an evening down there.. It does have some rougher areas, crime,drugs etc but really what city doesnt... the police patrol the public areas really well. Id move there if I didnt have a place already. ... more
