Quizzle is the latest web effort to try and put a price on your home. This time from the folks at Quicken Loans.
What do you get from Quizzle? From the Quizzle Blog:
What will you get? A free Experian credit report and score, a free home value estimate, free personalized mortgage recommedations, a free custom big-picture budget and access to a lot of other great tools that will help you improve your home know-how. And yes, it really is free. Not free as in we’ll take your credit card info and charge you later, not free as in we’ll give you a taste but you have to pay for the really good stuff. Really and truly free.
I was disappointed to see that the site requires you to register to get your “Quizzle Score” though.
Frankly, they’re stepping into a pretty crowded space – with HomeGain, eppraisal.com Cyberhomes and of course Zillow, all offering instant valuations. So I’m skeptical that such an obvious lead generation tool will gain much traction, given there are so many free alternatives.
That said Quicken is a strong brand, and they’ll likely drive some traffic through that relationship. It’s just too bad Quizzle chose to fizzle the sizzle of their new AVM tool by requiring registration.
