Searching for a new home in Chapin
, SC can be daunting, especially if you don’t know the area. There are tons of websites that claim you can search for listings on their site, and even give you a price, but did you know that Trulia and Zillow aren’t accurate?It’s true. It happens all the time. A client comes in thinking they’ve found the home of their dreams only to discover that the price tag is a nightmare.The truth about Trulia, and sites like Zillow, is that they are the real estate equivalent of a bad online dating site. The house you think you’ve been talking to all this time, is really fifty years old, with a cracked foundation, and more than skeletons in their closets. What’s worse is that the price you see on that house is only an estimate, and could vary wildly from the actual price! They use a fancy algorithm to calculate the price of the home based on zip code averages. I don’t need to tell you that you can judge a house by its zip code. These zip code averages leave out most of what actually determines the value of home. You could see how things like central air and forced air heating, versus baseboard or radiator heating, or marble tile versus fifteen year old carpeting, really effect how much a home in Chapin SC, or anywhere in the country, is worth.

What’s a person to do if they’re relocating to Lexington, SC, or looking to buy a new home in Chapin, SC? It’s one of those situations where technology isn’t going to cut it.

They know what homes are selling for, and most of all they know how the different comps a home offers will affect the value of the house.
