The <a href="http://www.zillow.com/local-info/">real estate values</a> in Lubbock, Texas do not follow the same market trends as other areas of the U.S. Our home's tax valuation is almost $24,000 HIGHER than Zillow's most recent market posting! We are planning to sell soon...our recent market analysis performed by Coldwell Banker is $299,900. I think Zillow needs to review their evaluation of local trends versus national trends more carefully as it has a profound affect on our properties.

It doesn't match what my house is assessed at locally, http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-zillow-estimate-on-my-house-is-way-off-It-doesn%27t-match-what-my-house-is-assessed-at-locally/421887/ and on what I'm paying taxes.&nbsp; There is a 13% difference.<br/><br/>Also, it doesn't have the correct date of the last sale which is 22 years off, and it has a photo that says 2010, but is actually pre-2006 or older?. ( In Spring 2007,we planted a 20ft tall oak tree in the front yard, as well as other landscaping, and the new siding/insulated windows that we installed in Spring 2007, is not reflected in the photo).&nbsp; So, how can zillow hope to have anywhere close to a correct estimate?<br \><br \>2 replies Sun, 06 Nov 2011 12:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-zillow-estimate-on-my-house-is-way-off-It-doesn%27t-match-what-my-house-is-assessed-at-locally/421887/ 2011-11-06T12:01:00Z Market Insider http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Market-Insider/410071/ E-edge has a brilliant tab now available for Keller Williams Agents - it is the Market Insider".
