Home Value

Home Value provides your website visitors instant home values for their applicable properties.

Home Value provides website visitors the ability to get accurate home price evaluations of their applicable property(s) based on Zillow's Free API. The plugin also features great address autocomplete searches for easy and accurate address information. Upon selection of the chosen address the user is prompted with a screen to enter their basic information via a web form in exchange for a free property value available on the next screen after a successful form submission.

Property address information is transmitted to Zillow's API via your API Key and based on that information Zillow sends back a price Zestimate for the provided address.
