Appraisers vs. Online Automated Valuation: Know the Difference

Big news came down the wire last week when it was announced that Zillow had acquired Trulia for $3.5 billion in stock options.  While a lot of people may not see how this merger will directly impact their life, for home buyers or sellers, it’s always a good idea to understand the difference between “zestimates”—home value estimates taken from Zillow—or Automated Valuation Models (AVM) and real people. When it comes to AVM’s, they tend to work best on “cookie cutter” homes where most of the properties look relatively similar to one another.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise that very few lenders rely solely on AVM’s for loan decisions since they can’t always accurately value unique properties such as those sitting on Lake Lanier, various upscale golf courses, and homes with a great deal of acreage. Therefore, the following is a list of things that an automated or non-appraiser valuation (such as the kind you would find on Zillow) Continue Reading

Home Buyers: Avoid Counterfeit HVAC Refrigerants

Sadly enough, for every high-priced or in-demand product, there is often a market of counterfeit options that leave unsuspecting customers feeling angry and cheated.  While fake purses and watches tend to be a common—and even accepted—part of our society, additional counterfeit products are showing up on the market that fail to be harmless knock-offs. Over the last few years, we’ve seen the cost of R-22 Freon skyrocket, which has left in its wake a trail of counterfeit and alternative refrigerants capable of damaging your HVAC system.  Therefore, if you find yourself in a position where you’re in need of refrigerant replacement, it’s important to understand the difference. GENUINE REFRIGERANTS: These have not only been laboratory tested, but they are also approved by the EPA and HVAC manufacturers for use in their equipment. ALTERNATIVE REFRIGERANTS: While these are approved by the EPA, they are not approved by the manufacturers for use in their equipment.  Although using these refrigerants is completely legal, Continue Reading
