I recently installed the Zillow Zestimator on the home page of my Web Site, Realty Of Marin. It is a fun tool to use because it gives you an instant estimate of the value of your home, or if you are nosey check out your friends and relatives too. I have mentioned Zillow in previous blog articles here.
How accurate is this Zillow Zestimator anyway? That really depends on the location and type of property you are looking at. If the home you are Zestimating is in the middle of a tract development the results may be accurate. If, on the other hand, you are estimating the value of Marin County Real Estate it may not prove to be as accurate. This is because Zillow can’t possibly know the quality of construction or the level of improvements. It also has no idea if you have a view of the Golden Gate Bridge or no view at all. It may know your lot is large but it does not know if it is useable or on a steep hill.
Who, cares, have some fun with it, just know we are talking ballpark value here and sometimes the value is not even in the ball park, especially with Marin Real Estate.Warren Carreiro warren@RealtyOfMarin.com http://www.realtyofmarin.com/
