How do we calculate Optima Estimate
The most accurate online estimate
We compared Optima Estimate to the world's leading real estate site Zillow's Zestimate. Guess what, our algorithms for the Canadian market performed a lot better than similar US markets. We are the leaders in automated home-value tools in the Canadian market. Like other estimates, this is not a formal appraisal or substitute for the in-person expertise of a real estate agent or professional appraiser.
Based on the most up-to-date data available
Optima Estimate has complete and direct access to multiple listing services (MLS) through the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), the databases that real estate agents use to list properties. We use MLS data on recently sold homes in your area to calculate your property's current market value.
