If the zillow estimate on my house is awfully low (look at comps), what do I do?


Although Zillow is a useful resource for many who wish to get an idea of how much homes are selling for in their neighborhood, the best way to obtain the most accurate information is to consult a local Real Estate Agent in your area. There are many factors that could be contributing to why certain homes are selling higher or lower - including whether or not that home was a short sale, bank-owned, or an equity seller who sold low or high, for example. A real estate agent can take a further look into the comparables in your neighborhood, see private notes or know things that an "automated report" cannot know; therefore, they truly are the best resource for obtaining a market analysis on your property.
