The Danger of Buyer confusion about Zestimates vs. For Sale Homes

Answer

I think we have our answer.  Ultra conspicuous THIS PROPERTY IS NOT FOR SALE - ESTIMATE ONLY, or better yet no Zestimates at all.  As realtor, we can't post properties not for sale on MLS and call them "guestimates".  And you're all right, you can't fix stupid.  Too bad that's the common denominator instead of brilliant.

The Danger of Buyer confusion about Zestimates vs. For Sale Homes

Answer

The Zestimate is a real problem.  I was contacted last week by a buyer who thought he could purchase a 3/2/2 in perfectly good shape just because the Zestimate estimated the price at $11,000.  The house wasn't even for sale for crying out loud.
