Zillow And A Reassuring Lie

Zillow And A Reassuring Lie

ZillowImage title

Over 70% of Zillow’s estimates aren’t even as close as 5% of  actual sales prices in our market. Some are even much worse. In fact Zillow is not even accurate to within 10% of the actual sales price more than 50% of the time. It’s these kinds of statistics that may not alarm you if you get lucky; however, most peoples’ most valuable possession should not be trusted to a website that was built strictly for lead generation. See, Zillow makes money off selling leads to real estate agents.

How do they get those leads? They spend a ton of money on advertising and web placement to capture you first on the internet. They then take your name and sell it to one or possibly more than one agent as a blind lead.

Zillow’s accuracy is continuing to falter due to the fact that many Realtor Associations have stopped sharing data with them. With Zillow buying Trulia this year and Rupert Murdoch buying Realtor.com, we’re seeing aggressive tactics to capture that future buyer or seller.

Please don’t get sucked into a sausage making factory. You and your home deserve to be represented by a wise and ethical Realtor; most of which aren’t buying leads from these online purveyors of email addresses and phone numbers. Go directly to your local professional and get an ACCURATE valuation of your home. We don’t charge people for these evaluations, and there is never an obligation of service for doing so.
