Some agents love to delete interior pictures after the home sells (boo!).  This makes it impossible to accurately compare the condition of the comperable property to the subject property.

 

Please don't delete interior photos.

The most difficult part is finding 1.) similar properties that were 2.) sold within the last six months or less (preferably less) and 3.) making the necessary adjustments based on conditions/improvements.

Finding good comps. I find that whenever you run into an inaccurate appraisal/CMA it is because they didn't use good comps. That is why Zillow is so inaccurate, they don't know how to make adjustments.

The hardest part is choosing the right comps. In times were comps are scarce, the harder part is finding comps at all and knowing what to add or deduct for differences.
