Before ever reading the "recommendation" as a Hidden Gem, I saw HV's hotlinks online asking me if I wanted to get an appraisal of my house. Sure, I wouldn't mind getting an up-to-date appraisal of my house, but I'm at least smart enough to know that no computer program is going to generate it. So, that's why I didn't hit the link. If I did, and ended up with a realtor calling me, I would have been pissed. I was happy when all those irritating spam calls were stopped. If a realtor had called me because I was looking for a free appraisal, I'd be pissed. And even if I were in the market for a realtor, I'd be irritated if that's how he made contact. Therefore, calling me would be a waste of the realtor's time.In short, I wouldn't find any value in the service HV provides, either as a homeowner or a realtor. From what little I know, it doesn't sound like a workable game plan for HV.That doesn't mean that it's not a great stock investment. It's just that when I've disliked the product or the service of a company, investing in it has never worked out for me. Should I think there are sufficient homeowners and realtors that would think differently from me to make HV profitable? I guess so, but I'm not willing to bet my money on it.Just my two cents.
