Zestimates... A Trustworthy Source?
One of the most popular websites in real estate is undoubtedly Zillow. But did you know that their home value “Zestimates” are often WAY off?
In fact, the CEO of Zillow just sold his own home in Seattle for 40% LESS than the Zestimate!
Per Inman News, “On February 29th, Spencer Rascoff sold a Seattle home for $1.05 million, 40 percent less than the Zestimate of $1.75 million shown on its property page a day later.”
Zillow actually has a disclaimer on their website where you can see exactly how INACCURATE they are. They just make it hard to find.
As a real estate agent I actually have access to a tool that can accurately show someone how much their home is worth. I normally only use it when someone is selling their home soon, but after seeing how inaccurate Zillow is I am now offering to provide this service to ANYONE who is curious.
If you send an email to [email protected] with your home or condo's address (or the address of a property you are curious about the value of) I would be happy to send you a “Zactimate” today :)
