Zestimate is as estimate based on information zillow has access to and other individuals have loaded onto the website. It also takes into account homes which are listed, pending sale, and sold in a specified area over an extended amount of time. This will give individuals a rough idea of a home value, but not an exact value. Getting a qualified realtor in your community or an appraiser will give you a more exact home value. This is information you can provide individuals who are looking to purchase your property. If you want to change the information on your zestimate, you can always edit your home's information to reflect improvements.

The time can vary depending on the area of the country you live.Zillow uses what the call a "Zestimate" to determine the value of homes in your area, but their information can be inaccurate. Their data comes from public records, individuals who post listings, and home sales around your house. Therefore, this is not always a true indicator of a home's value, but ti will give you a baseline. The best thing to do is contact a local Realtor to help you determine a more precise value for your home.

Buying a home in foreclosure might sound tempting, but you should consider the other circumstances. First, a home in foreclosure has to move through sever stages before it can be purchased by an individual for the rock bottom price you desire. These homes are often no longer cared fore, could have plumbing or electrical stolen or damaged throughout, and even structural issues to the home. These properties are also sold "AS IS". Therefore, the seller will to fix any issues you may find in the house which can potentially cost you thousands in repairs. A home which has been on the market an extended amount of time might be listed higher, but the seller has kept his property in good condition, will fix some issues around the house if requested, and might reduce his price to sell the house and move on. In my opinion, stick with the listings.
