zillow inaccuraciesAs a realtor, I say Zillow is not accurate on anything other than address. My personal home is on this site and they have my square footage wrong, my location is also very wrong and I don't believe my home is valued at "their suggested value". They have us located about a mile down the road from where we live and home values in that area are different than home values in my area, The homes in my area are larger, have more acreage and more square footage. Makes a difference! We recently had a bank appraiser give us an appraisal and it's no where close to what Zillow shows, it's more, much more! You can't evaluate the value of a home by doing a drive by or by using city/county records which can often times be inaccurate!....What if people have knocked a wall out and added square footage without telling the county or city? What about views, pool and entertainment areas in the back patios? Zillow can't see those from a county/city report or drive by. Geez...no wonder the real estate business is in the dumper...between banks not lending money due to stricter guidelines and Zillow and other sites like it not having accurate info and true location of properties how can a homeowner win? It sends a negative message to perspective buyers as well. I personally discourage my customers from using Zillow and sites like it for comps. I encourage them to use a local MLS or use local title companies for more accurate comps....Then you will have the true value or a good fact simile for a property!May 09 2012 - Staten Island0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
