How Accurate are Zillow's Estimates?

By

You have to love the fact that Zillow is honest enough to chart their overall accuracy on home pricing. You may be surprised as to how un-accurate they can sometime be!

A  lot of Sellers do not dig deep into the Zillow methodology.  The margin of error is very high in some areas. But at least they understand the shortcomings of the system - which is the first step towards improvement.

I agree. Zillow was revolutionary and they are always trying to improve.

Michele: Thank you for this.  Important for buyers and sellers to understand the accuracy of Zestimates and nice to know Zillow actually provides their own information about that as well.

Zillow is an absolute joke when it comes to accurately depticting real estate value. I have put together one of the most detailed articles you will see regarding how accurate Zillow home estimates are. Zillow is the bane of all Realtors. We spend countless unnecessary hours explaining to consumers why a computer model can not be trusted for what a home is actually worth.
