|Some values are estimated as I couldn't log into my husband's accounts at the time (didn't have his phone or email to verify identity). |
I downgraded my car on kbb to "good" this month.
Looking at houses in our neighborhood reassures me that we've made a great decision on our new home. The location is working out very well for us so far, and financially I'm reassured that it was a great decision. We offered over list - and over zillow estimate - based on how quickly things were moving in the market. Our realtor assured us it would be worth offering up to 250k (list 240k), and we put in an offer on a Saturday evening - before an open house they had scheduled for Sunday. We knew this house would go for over list (based on what we've been seeing), and decided this way WE could decide how much we were comfortable with rather than getting into a bidding war. Looking more closely on zillow now (and seeing what else is going on in the neighborhood), the price we paid is right in line with other similar houses in the neighborhood. Zillow has lifted the estimated home value now to above what we paid, based on the recent selling price of our home and a few others in the area. Most importantly, we love the neighborhood and our home and think we will be happy here for a long time!
