The folks behind the RealtyThoughts weblog today launch eppraisal.com, a Zillow-like Automated Valuation Method promising results for 70,000,000 homes. The site is wicked clean, but it wasn’t wicked fast — but I’m willing to cut ‘em a break on the assumption that they’re seeing a lot of first-day traffic.
Differences from Zillow:
- Runs on Safari
- No ads
- Looks like the business model will be lead generation
- Produces a range of values instead of a dubious Dr. Science Zestimate
- Likes my house better than Zillow does
The eppraisalites (sounds biblical, don’t it?) will be in New Orleans signing up Realtors for the lead generation part of the product.
Give it a try. Same elaborate promises, but without the troublesome lawsuits…
