To Zillow, or not to Zillow..?

Has the accuracy of Zillow grown over the years? I recall when Zillow started their figures were vastly off.

I've not been paying attention to Zillow for pricing however I have noticed how they offer more services and with that are gaining more popularity.

It would seem that they could grow into a resource.

Are they close? Is their rental calculator accurate for your areas?

Zanks, --108.28.xx.xxx

Zillow sales data in my area differs from our regional multi list values which are highly reliable. Local, county or state section 8 housing authorities have a rental data base from a semi-scientific poll of apartment complexes in the areas they serve. They sometimes are willing to share that data. --73.215.xxx.xx

Didn't Zillow recently buy a company that buys homes.

If it is your job to make and present home values and a company that you own would later go around and purchase the homes, wouldn't that appear to be some inside dealings?

The market here is as hot as I have seen in over a decade so I am not seeing the inside dealing, but I would expect that the prices on zillow will come down even more than the rest of the market in specific areas where they are buying --24.154.xx.x

No, I don't find them accurate for our area. We own in a place where a mansion can be next to a trailer and Zillow's head explodes trying to figure out neighborhoods like that. --50.82.xxx.xxx

I find Zillow to be to high or to low 75% of the time on property values and to high 90% of the time on rent estimates. --99.23.xxx.x

They were 20% low on one I just sold. --64.130.xx.xx

Not reliable. And their Zestimates for house sales are off on my properties by 10-20%....usually too high. --99.92.xxx.xxx

There s an article in the paper that zillow lost 126k per house in it's portfolio. So I wouldn't trust them to perovide the public with accurate info when it's in their best interest to low ball things --100.38.xx.xxx

The words ZILLOW and ACCURATE do not belong in the same sentence.

I sold a gorgeous flip last year for $165,000. Zillow keeps sending me updates saying itís now worth $67,000 in our booming market.

The "A" in Zillow stands for accuracy.

Enough said? --67.242.xx.xx
