Home Value provides your website visitors the ability to get accurate home price valuations of their applicable property(s). The plugin also features address autocomplete searches powered by Google 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. You get leads, they get free valuations.

- From the main settings screen, check the «Generate or retrieve key» checkbox & then click save settings. This will generate your home value license key as well as a working Google Places API Key applicable to your website only.
- Navigate to the E-Mail settings tab and enter in your desired email address to receive email notifications upon users completing your home evaluation form.
- Finally place the [8b_home_value] shortcode on a page where you’d like the home value form to display and you’re ready to start getting leads!
How many home valuations do I get for free?
You get 10 free valuations per month absolutely free. That number resets automatically every month.
What if I want more valuations than provided for free?
- We offer premium upgrades that allow you to purchase additional values in bulk at rates much cheaper than the industry average starting at just $35.
- From your 8b Home Value settings panel simply look for the Get More Valuations button and click it to view the current options available.
- Upon checking out you will download and install the premium plugin and refresh your valuation status to view your additional valuations available.
- Renewal and enterprise discounts are also available at Homevalueplugin.com.
Do you have values for every property in the US?
Unfortunately we do not. However we did build this circumstance into the plugin so if a user enters an invalid address or address we do not current have the data for to provide an instant value, they will still go through the lead process at which point you can edit the information provided to them and optimally can then provide the user with a manual valuation of the property.
The values don’t appear accurate, can I adjust them?
Yes. As of the 2.20 release you now have the ability to increase/decrease the valuations based on %.
Does this plugin work outside of the United States?
No, it currently only works in the United States.
