Zillow Estimates

What’s up with the “Zillow Zestimate”??

“I’m selling my home and Zillow has it estimated $50,000 under our list price!”  More common than you think. Part of Zillow’s valuation is dependent on the zip code.  There can be a million dollar or more difference within the same zip!   Of course, there are other factors used, but many homes are mis-valued.  This is where a real estate agent’s value really comes in.  I do a thorough investigation of the neighborhood, the home, and any other factors that come into play.  It’s not a matter of plugging numbers, it’s a matter of knowing the area.  Something Zillow doesn’t do.  So sure, start your search with Zillow, but before you pull the trigger call your agent.
