Zillow - For Entertainment Purposes Only

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Components

 

 

That's right, I said it.

Zillow - It's for entertainment purposes ONLY!

Type in an address, any address, wind 'er up and let 'er go!

BAM!

Your home is worth: 500,000

Yours? 437,000

And yours?

MAKE ME AN OFFER!

Go ahead, make me an offer!

I dare ya.

Ok, Z...I just bought all new appliances.  I want 15,000 extra for those. They're top o' the line.  The salesman said so.   So, I"ll take ummm, er....say, 349,999 for mine.  Nine rhymes with mine.  Ha!

BAM!

Seller says 349,999 going once, twice...SOLD for 192,500**

 

 

That was very entertaining, if I say so myself,

Lanette in Bel Air

 

**That's Z-bucks - 192,500 Z-Bucks, folks.

 

 

BTW, if you're looking to sell your home and you'd like to know what your home is worth in today's market, call me. I'll do a professional CMA and let you know.  I'll tell you in US Dollars, too, not Z-Bucks...'cause telling you your home's worth in Z-bucks just wouldn't be cool.

Thanks, Richard et al. 

Just simple-minded ramblings about one of my favorite sites - NOT.

I love zillow, when they agree with me. i must say they are more accurate than cyberhomes on epraisals.com

I think they are totally useless. The only time they help is when the buyer sees that they bought the home for much lower than the Zillow estimate - then they think we are wonderful for getting them such a deal!

Funny how Realtors (including me!) find Z to be in the useless category, but so many homeowners consult it like it's the bible!  I am constantly reminding my husband that those zestimates aren't very realistic, though I truly wish they were.  

One of my favorite things when you consult a Z map of neighborhood values is when the alley is valued at $699,000!

A sad, but very funny accurate presentation on Zillow.  I wish more people could see this post that are taken in by that site.
