where do you get your information?

Every time I look at Zillow, your estimates make no sense.  How do you get to those numbers?  Is someone from Kentucky trying to estimate real estate prices in the SF Bay Area?

In my personal experience, because Zestimates are automated, they tend to be inaccurate, especially in areas like San Francisco where the market price of a home can vary so steeply from one block to the next.  That being said, they can be decent estimates for a range of value of a home or rental.  If you want a more accurate estimate of value of a house, contact an appraiser, or a real estate agent who will do a market analysis of a particular home to get a more detailed and accurate depection of value.  While I'm not an appraiser, I can put together a market analysis and give you an estimate of value for your home if you are interested.

Hope this helps!
