Zestimate - can it be corrected?

Answer

Please dont worry so much about your valuation on zillow. The zestimate is a tool, it is a computer generated valuation. It is useful but not the ultimate way to give your property value. Any appraiser or realtor will be able to give you a better understanding by comparing similar properties sold.But still no Realtor or Appraiser can determine "exactly" what your home is worth. They can only go by the best sales and history of sales showing similar types of properties. The ultimate person who determines exact value or sales price, is the buyer who purchases the home.

Help with purchasing my father in law's home

Answer

Brice, The key here is going to be your lender and how they want to set this up for you both.Just let the lender know the situation and they will design the loan to accomidate your needs.You need to also have a chat with the attourneys that will close the loan and make sure you are following all the regulations reguarding  your father in law. There are some serious consequences if someone later challenges his estate to dispute if what you did was for his greatest good.Good Luck to you all.
