Trulia or any other website can't see inside your home. The only way to get an accurate market analysis of your home is either to hire an appraiser, which is going to cost you, or contact a local realtor and ask for a complimentary analysis. These big websites base their opinions on tax assessor information, mostly, and many many times those records don't reflect unique features such as lake frontage and so on. A 2 car garage, number of baths and finished basements would tend to fall into that category. If you want an accurate opinion of value, call a realtor.
