Whether you’re already sold on the free personal finance tracking at Mint.com or you need even more incentive to join, if you are a homeowner today’s news should sweeten the pot. They’re partnering with Zillow.com so as to include the value of your home among the assets (and debt) Mint tracks in your own personal online profile.

Zillow is a leading real estate and home shopping site with services that include a “Zestimate” that estimates your home’s value. It is this information that Zillow will provide through Mint, giving users a more accurate picture of their assets.

“This will give Mint users a more complete financial picture so they can save and do more with their money,” says Mint.com founder Aaron Patzer. “Because a home is usually a person’s largest asset, it makes perfect sense for us to integrate with Zillow, to help our users track their home’s Zestimate in their Mint account.”

To incorporate the value of your home into your Mint profile, you can now add a “Real Estate” account. All you need provide is your home address in the search box and the software will generate your Zestimate. However, you do have the option of overriding this estimate with your own manual entry.

Zestimates are based on comparable sales and individual home facts, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, lot size and remodels.

Check out Mint.com to give your free Zestimate a try, among numerous other financial tracking tools. And for more in depth real estate and home shopping services, go directly to Zillow.com.
