For Agents or Owners:


CMA, BPO, AVM? I just want to know the fair value of my home. Too many real estate agents don’t measure homes any longer and when they create a value for you, they base it on the square footage in tax records. Guess what? The square footage in tax records is wrong more than it is right. It’s not their job to measure precise square footage. It’s based on a “guestimate” and that’s not a word you want to hear when calculating the value on your largest, lifetime investment. Before you call an agent, call an HMS®. Or, better yet, call an agent who is an HMS®! Size does matter and an HMS® is an ANSI® expert and the best trained in the business.
