CB Estimate

Get an Instant Estimate on Your Home*

Learn your home’s value so you can tackle the real estate market with confidence.

*This is an estimate only and is not an appraisal. The CB Estimate provides an estimated market value of your home generated by a proprietary algorithm using aggregated data collected from third parties and public records and is intended to provide you with a general value of the property. The actual appraised value of any property may be higher or lower than the estimated market value provided by the CB Estimate.
