Zillow is insane

The value of my home has gone down 9% in the last 30 days. The home was underpriced by Zillow by about 35% before this last drop. Thank God I'm not trying to sell my home or am not a Real Estate agent. Zillow is a joke!

Clay, They probably thought it was Jon LOL..

The value of your home is not determined by Zillows Zestimate..Even Zillow makes no claim it's accurate...Zillow FAQ

Zillow does not always have the most accurate information to base their home values on. While Zillow can be a great resource for buyers and sellers to explore the market and research homes, it is best used as a jump off point. To get the most accurate estimate on the market value of your home, you should always consult with a  Realtor in your area.

per square foot, the average price in maricopa county HAS dropped by 9% in the past few months. The cromford real estate report has up to the day data, zillow runs further behind, but prices are again dropping fast.

Zillows Zestimate is just that, an estimate. Contact a local Realtor and an appraiser if you really want to pin down an accurate price.

I always cringe when either a buyer and/or a seller contacts me and tells me zillow estimate states we should pay this and/or sell for that.
In particular our area and dynamics there is no rhyme or reason to pricing.
Zillow has a lot of good information and advice but the values they place on the current market value can either be way too high and/or way too low in most cases.
Best to check with your local realtor for recent like sales of homes as yours in your neighborhood.

Interesting point.  One of the most frustrating aspects of our lives as real estate professionals is when we go to a home, armed the current market statistics, expertise and a price range, and are told that we are way off base because Zillow says it is much higher.  I cannot imagine a homeowner who would consider my market analysis valid if I did not view the inside of a home, integrate the upgrades into the price, take into consideration the locational points (golf course view, etc.), and yet this is what an owner is relying on when using Zillow for anything more than a tool.

I still have homeowners call me from time to time with Zestimate news.
They totally "know better" having been on the market under a Zillow listing and getting weekly/biweekly direct market reports from me in person.


We can't help ourselves:-) The Zestimate seems to be addicting.
Accurate? No. Interesting? Yes.

I chuckle when someone talks of Zillow's disclaimer that their zestimate is "just a starting point", but yet they advertise their site as the place to find home values. Strange or criminal, you decide.

Maybe, it is "just a starting point" + "to find the home value".
