Using Mint features (like Kelley Blue Book and Zillow) to depreciate assets. How? I don't see the functionality there.

I'd like to track the depreciation of my 2 cars via Mint, and ideally the fluctuation in my home value with Zillow (as referenced by others).  I see a lot of references to Kelley Blue Book and answers provided on how to use it.  When I try to add a car, there is no ability to spec the make, model, year etc... like some of the MINT answers would suggest. (I reference this Q&A: https://mint.lc.intuit.com/questions/976179-mint-faq-how-can-i-add-my-car-as-an-asset-in-mint

When adding an 'other' asset, the functionality I see only lets me 'name' the car and manually enter a value$.  Can you advise on how I make use of KBB?  Is it only available in the U.S.?  Ditto for Zillow for homes.  Help please??  These seem like great features that are there, but I cannot find them.

Answer

fishinator,

I apologize for any inconvenience it may cause, but as mint00community mentioned, the KBB and Zillow features are currently US only.  At this time you would need to manually update the values of your property periodically if you are a Canadian user.  Sorry again for any trouble this causes, we may add more functionality in the future for Canadian users but we don't have any set timeline on any of it.  

Regards,
Jessie

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
