I am assuming that trulia is using given data for sold homes with the same no. of bedrooms and bath, and then the computer spits out a number. This is by no means a good market evaluation of a home,
only a local Realtor with expertise and experience in the area will be able to take inventory of a home,
look at it inside and out, then compare it to recently similar sold homes, by making adjustments for all that your home has or the lack thereof compared to the comps.... and the Realtor will also inform you
about the current similar homes that are on the market and that will compete with your home.
So consider the valuations here on Trulia or any site, a computer generated estimate ..... definitely do not rely on them.
