What is the source of the CB Estimate?
The CB Estimate is generated by a proprietary algorithm using aggregated data
collected from third parties and public records and is intended to provide a user with a general value of the property. The accuracy of the CB Estimate depends on the availability and accuracy of relevant market data. This is an estimate only and is not, or should not be used, as an appraisal. The actual appraised value of any property may be higher or lower than the estimated market value provided by the CB Estimate. Actual listing values may vary and not all property types are included.
Will a CB Estimate show if a property is currently listed for sale?
No. If a property is currently listed for sale and has a listing page on
coldwellbanker.com, whether a Coldwell Banker listing or a listing from another real
estate company, the user will be taken to the listing page on coldwellbanker.com and a CB Estimate will not be generated.
What happens if no data appears for a property?
When a user enters an address in the CB Estimate search bar and the address is not in the database, the user will receive a pop-up error indicating that the address
searched is not in our database.
How frequently is the CB Estimate updated?
The CB Estimate data feed is refreshed monthly.
