The seller valuation tool within kvCORE is used to offer an estimated value with the address of that property. The seller valuation tool can be used on both the kvCORE websites as well as within each contact profile. Home valuations are a great way to capture seller-focused leads using kvCORE and provide current seller leads with a free home valuation.

Please Note: Please be aware that the valuation reports are created using publically available sales data. They are still just an estimate and the most accurate valuation would be an in-person assessment.

Disclaimer: Canadian Agents please be advised that the valuation tool provided by kvCORE gathers the valuation data for listings through a unique method that is not fully usable within the Canadian borders. Canadian agents using kvCORE are restricted in their usage with the home valuation reports. Because of this difference, valuations requested through a kvCORE seller valuation report for Canadian users will display as follows:

"Thanks for reaching out about {address}. While there are many automated tools designed to approximate a home's value, the most accurate valuation will be achieved by an in-person assessment. We'll/I'll reach out to set up a time to talk about your home!”

How to get a Seller Valuation from the Sell Tab (Website)?

On each website provided from kvCORE, you have a built-in 'Sell' tab, this area of your site will allow leads to enter the listing address where it states 'Please enter your address' (and unit number if needed).

To access this area select the 'Sell' tab on your website home page

Within your 'Sell' tab, your contacts will enter their address (as well as a unit number) to get their property's estimated value. After the address has been entered they will click on 'Get Estimate'.

Once this is accomplished the lead will be asked to register with an email (and phone number if required by your website settings) in order to get the valuation.

Please Note: When a prospective lead begins to put in their address for a home valuation and then exits the page before putting in their contact information the lead is still added to the CRM. The valuation will NOT run if the lead does not put in their contact info, even if the information is available.

You can delete the lead that's automatically created or archive them if they'd like them removed from your CRM.

When the lead has completed the registration they will be collected with their data and be shown the estimated value of their listing as well as methods of contacting the assigned agent.

The end result will show the New Lead plus the requested property valuation on your dashboard that you can now access.

How to Get a Seller Valuation From Within the Lead Profile?

If you already have sellers in your CRM then you can set them up with seller valuation from within the lead profile. This option allows you (the assigned agent) to send the valuation report without the lead requesting one themselves from the 'Sell' tab.

To access the lead profile select the contact name, either in the Dashboard or the Smart CRM

From here, go to the menu to the right of the contact profile and scroll down to 'Listing Valuation. Add the address and click 'Save'. To send the valuation to your contact click the 'Send Now' button.

You can edit or change the valuation address with this process at any time.

You can then view the information as a note in the contact timeline.

Frequently Asked Questions

A lead came in with an address only. Why, and what do I do?

This happens when a prospective lead begins to put in their address for a home valuation and then exits the page before putting in their contact information. The lead is still added to the CRM as a way to keep you updated on how many people are requesting the valuation, and is really only there for reference. The Valuation will NOT run if the lead does not put in their contact info, even if the information is available. You can delete the lead that's automatically created or archive them if they'd like them removed from your CRM.

My lead entered an address and it shows $0 - is there something wrong with the tool?

Most of the time this happens when there is not enough data to give a good computer-generated valuation.

Why was my lead asked to contact me to receive the valuation instead of having it sent to them immediately?

This can happen if some data is available, but not enough to create an automatic valuation.

Where can I view the valuation?

The valuation can be viewed in the contact timeline! You'll be able to review all of the information that the client received.
