I was reading a local newspaper (one of those half-page jobs you get for free in the mail) the other night and an article about Zillow caught my attention.
In particular, here's a quote that got my attention:
When questioned about the reliability and accuracy of information available [on the site], the CEO of Zillow made a statement last year that "while Zestimates are a good starting point, nationwide Zestimates have a 'median error rate' of about 8 percent."
First of all, I've noticed this as well. It always seems that any house I own is vastly under-priced on Zillow and when I want to buy and look up the home it's always vastly over-priced. Ugh!
Second, price updates are very sporadic. I remember living in my last house for a year before I saw my purchase reflected in Zillow.
Third, 8 percent!!! Yikes!!! A $500k house could be on Zillow for $540k or $460k -- and that's just the median! It could be worse!!
Finally, the article says the primary purpose for Zillow is a lead generation tool for real estate agents (which I figured, but it was nice it was confirmed).
Ok, I didn't really mean for this post to be a rant against Zillow. The article just confirmed some things I had been wondering about and I thought I'd share them.
Any big Zillow users out there?
