How Reliable Are Home Valuation Tools? | Windermere Blog

Online valuation tools have become a key part of the home buying and selling process, but they’ve been proven to be highly unreliable in certain instances. One thing that is for certain is that these valuation tools have reinforced that real estate agents are as vital to the process of pricing a home as they ever were – and maybe even more so now.

Gym memberships and organic produce can be considered part of the trend. But so can incense, DNA tests and sleep aids. So why not “well” buildings?

Paul Scialla wants to extend the wellness fad from aromatherapy and hair gummies to condominiums and casino hotels.
