I know there's no magical place where all of the million dollar buyers hang out... and if there were you probably wouldn't tell anyone! But does anyone have advice that has worked for them when looking for buyers in the million to 5 million dollar range?
I just answered your other question and then saw that you added this. Good for you, your obviously on the right track! If Zillow doesn't alter their value I don't think you have anything to worry about.
The Zestimate, or estimated value of a home on Zillow, is only an estimate and has no baring on your home's actual value. It frequently doesn't take into account the upgrades and special features of your home. The best way to get a good idea of what your home is worth is to have an appraisal done or to ask a Real Estate professional to do a comparable market analysis. In any case, if you are considering selling your home, I wouldn't worry what the Zestimate says. Even if a potential buyer sees that estimate, they will more than likely come view your home and see its unique qualities. They'll also have the advice of a Realtor who will be able to tell them what a more realistic value might be. Hope this helps!
Go into "settings" then go to "notifications," which should be the third option down. Then go to Zillow and turn alerts and/or badges off.
Try postlets.com. It's like Vflyer but I like it better. Also, did you ask the owner if they requested it be removed from Zillow? Maybe they really did.
This is an important question to discuss with your lender. Certainly now is a good time to consider refinancing if that is a good option for you, because you have the opportunity to lock in a low rate. With interest rates as low as they are, I wouldn't be too concerned with being stuck with the rate your lender can give you. Just make sure your lender explains your rate and repayment very clearly to you so that there are no surprises.

Sounds like you would qualify based on the extension, as long as you opened escrow before April 30 and close before September 30. Your contract from november 28, 2009 to July 20 or even August falls within these deadlines.

What my colleagues are talking about is having an experienced local Realtor do a comparable market analysis for you to find out what similar homes near the house you saw have recently sold for. Finding out what buyers have recently paid for comparable houses nearby is one of the best ways to determine the value of a house. A Realtor like myself would be happy to do this for you free of charge. Or, if you are seriously thinking about purchasing this home, it might be worth getting an appraisal done. Let me know if I can be of service, I'd be happy to help you determine the value of the house, you'd just have to send me the address. Hope this helps!
