Ummm hi! It’s your neighborhood real estate agent jumping in to remind you that the little blue home estimate that Zillow gives you isn’t accurate.
🚩 Zillow has even come out and said that their Zestimates aren’t correct. 🚩
Zillow uses algorithms to determine your house price. It looks at all the local market activity and house specifications to come up with a number that your house may (or may not) be worth.
This means that if a nearby house for sale is WAYYYY overpriced, the algorithms show you a higher number than YOUR home is actually worth.
If a nearby house sells for really low, it could show you a lower home value on YOUR home.
Zillow also doesn’t know about…
✔ the kitchen you just renovated
✔ the neighbor with the really tacky décor & 5 trucks in the grass
✔ the grocery store & entertainment district being within walking distance
✔ the police tape on the front door of a house 2 doors down
All that to say, Zillow really can’t tell you what your home would sell for in this market.
But do you know who would?
