SAN FRANCISCO — OnBoard LLC, a real estate data provider, has released a new home-value estimator tool for real estate brokers to offer to online consumers.
The application will give high and low estimated value ranges of properties, facts about how the range was calculated, and information on requesting a comparative market analysis from a real estate agent.
The value estimator currently covers more than 1,250 counties nationwide and will be available in August for local, regional and national usage, the company said.
Many real estate companies and online services have been incorporating home-valuation offerings on their Web sites as a way to attract consumers. Venture-backed Zillow.com last week partnered with Yahoo! to put its home-value estimator in front of Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Real Estate users.
