Zillow.com continues to be an unreliable source of available properties AND of estimated values of homes. News Corp reports that Zillow does not list from 20 - 52% of available properties for sale by Realtors in their local MLS. This is too high of a percentage. Zestimate can also be as much as 35% off when evaluating home values, especially in waterfront neighborhoods. Lastly, Zillow will often have properties still available when in fact they were under contract or sold weeks ago. These inaccuracies can be frustrating to buyers, sellers and Realtors.
If you are interested in searching online for properties let Sue know and we'll set you up with a courtesy search account that is tied directly to our MLS. You will essentially have the same accurate, time-sensitive information that Realtors have.
