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.
