How about correcting the wrong valuation numbers before you go into other "new cool features"? Like AOL...the extra stuff just keeps AOL jobs, but doesn't add to the experience. You can't even keep racist, sexist drivel and spammers off the board. Try to deal with those things first.
If you see any sexist or racist comments in these forums, please flag them. We obviously cannot read everythiung that gets posted here but we do moderate these forums 7 days a week and will remove any offensive postings.
I cant help but confirm the overwhelming theme of the general public, your customers, real estate professionals and just plane courious that there are very serious flaws in the Zillow valuation system. I think the Zillow concept is brilliant. However, A great deal of responsibility comes with wheelding the valuation of real estate. With a tool like Zillow, the impact of valuating realestate inaccuratley can be devestating to an individual, a zip code, county, state and even the country.
This is worthy of consideration and perty interesting. Based on Zillow area figures, if 60% of the homes sold were within 10% of the Zestimate and 80% are within 20% they have an accurate estimate of value.
Example: Sold $600,000
that hasnt been how it's being used.
A name called Zdnek Zdrazil claimed my house as a owner and edit the features, how could it happen? Is is illegal?

Zillow is neither an official company nor a house transaction entity. If it asks people to send the official documentations for its review or just post wrong information on some one’s property to mislead their asset that may causes legislative its problems.
I think it would be cool to add geography as a filter choice on the duals in addition to price range and size of home. People could claim best kitchen in their city or state, or yard of the month.
I just bought an older row house. I've noticed that all the highly ranked rooms are huge open homes with huge spaces and big windows - but not all houses are like that. So, I'd like to suggest categorizing homes by Decades or by type. That way, we could all find houses to relate to our personal decorating delimmas! Thanks.
I would like to be able to look at homes based on different criteria - tile roofs, single story, pool yards, etc. to look for home improvement ideas
i notice that in Santa Monica 90404 there is much old info posted on Zillow. for ex. 1533 18th st.#3 is still listed as for sale, when it is off the MLS and sold in April 08 (today is May 24, 08). why can't Zillow just get its info off of the MLS? how else can it be credible? thanks for your response.
also, i can't find any way to search for income properties (2-4 units) only, condos only, or single family only. seems like anyone would want to narrow the search in that way.
You should allow the homeowner choose which picture you use in Dueling Digs. For example, I have multiple pictures posted of the exterior of a house I have in your site. You choose one of them as the exterior picture for Dueling Digs and I think it is not the nicest exterior shot I have in my pics. You should let the owner choose which picture to duel with. I think people would like that.
WHY ARE THERE NO PHONE NUMBERS OR REAL ESTATE AGENT LISTED FOR THE HOUSE IN "NIPTON" CA.???? I DON'T GET IT????
ALSO, ANOTHER HOUSE THERE IS LISTED THE SAME WAY???
IS IT, IF THE HOUSE IS SOLD YOU TAKE THE PHONE NUMBER OUT???
I think this is a great idea, however, I think it should be with comparably priced homes. I know I can't afford any of the spectacular homes that were used and it's obvious that some of the dueling bathrooms or kitchens, let's say, were not from the same priced neighborhoods. One should be able to choose price range, than only homes in that price range are compared, you know, apples to apples idea. Thanks for asking.
dueling green homes please or catagorize by the "LEED" criteria ;) lots of good ideas up there!
Thank you, THANK YOU for Dueling Digs. My laundry is backed up and the house is a mess, but I'm having soooooooo much fun!!
I am addicted to the kitchens, as I am searching for something that will "fit" the specs of a new house we are purchasing. Allowing a "Search By" feature for specific kitchen dimensions (ie 11'6"x12'6") or a particular feature (ie. "rounded kitchen island") would be fantastic.
But a HUGE thank you for this feature. I haven't encountered anything else like it anywhere on the web. I'm hooked!!
More categories, like:
Mother-in-law (or guest) (separate) quarters
Why is it that the majority of the homes we vote on are on the West coast? There are a bazillion more beautiful homes on the East coast - New England, New York, Florida, Georgia????? How do the particular "contestants" arrive in our "pool" anyway? I think we ought to be able to submit or suggest homes we come across or know first-hand of!
Having the "Dueling Things" actually work or the duel aspect sounds like fun. When is it going to work? I have no problems with any of thousands of other web-sites, why is this not working? I only have one "thing" show up at a time when the pop duel window loads and even then there is no migration buttons. Not at all satisfactory. Oh, I have hi-speed DSL and (as mentioned) no other problems surfing or system or otherwise. Such a pity that. Oh, also, your web-site is quite entertaining with regards to real estate valuations. One MUST bear in mind that your site is, after all, merely entertainment or an educated guess-timate. I have noticed that some remarks are particularly edgey, vitrolic and slightly hysterical concerning the poster's perception for needful accuracy of property valuation. Have they never heard of a professional estimator?
Um.. it would be cool if you had different price ranges... com on, look at the homes on most of the winner pages, they are super ritzy mansions!!! honestly, viewing the current winners just kinda makes you go... Wow, I live in a cracker jack box with windows! LOL show some love and put a price filter on the homes would ya please?!
When users load a photo on to the site, require that they categorize the photo as kitchen, bedroom, etc.
Provide dueling among a registered users "favourite houses"
Provide dueling among houses that are categorized as "colonials", "ranch", "saltbox"
Provide three-way dueling - that is make someone choose among three, rather than two photos.
Provide the "dueling" visibility of photographs for search results.
Make it easier for users to post their own pics; and allow them to label and tag their photos so that we can search photos by tags. These photos should be associated with the house so that they can be searched or viewed by address. All pics should be included in Dueling Digs unless poster opts out. In addition to clicking on the photo to vote, there should be "love it" and "hate it" buttons below each. Then, later, I could look through all the ones I loved. I have a feeling that something like a ultra-modern loft might get a lot of "love it" clicks, but not a lot of votes. A lot of homes with strong personal taste might get more clicks like that. Over time, with relative preference for home features, you could have a much better tool for valuing each home.
Allow readers to sort these posts by the "thumbs up" ratings so we can read the good stuff.
Include or search for lower priced and smaller houses. I have a house in an older neighborhood that I would like to get some ideas for but the duel had zero bathrooms for under 250,000 and up to 1,200 Sq ft and only one kitchen.
What is the percentage of homes in each price range/size in the US? I suspect that houses above $250,000 are in the minority yet those are the ones you have most examples of.
It'd be nice to be able to sort by popularity -- for example, I'd love to be able to see the LEAST popular pictures, just to learn what NOT to do in a remodel.
Thanks for this fun feature.
Several months ago our house had the highest "zestimate" on the street...we have the largest house, ocean view with a $100,000 infinity edge pool...now I notice a house two doors over, same floor plan, no pool is listed HIGHER than ours? What gives? Why the change? I'm beginning to question Zillows "credibility"...seems a bit fickle...
Disappointed in San Elijo Hills, San Marcos, CA
I would love to only see sold and active sales on dualing digs. It would bring more cred to the page. I do love playing with it though. Lots of great ideas. Would like to see more house and pics on there.
