Time is money"But Zillow Says my house is worth $______.__"

Here's a shocker...  Zillow isn't always accurate, close or even in the same ballpark as the actual property value. Don't get me wrong, Zillow is a tool that is helpful for homeowners and homebuyers, but if you really want to know the value of your home you should talk to a trusted REALTOR® and ask them to prepare a FREE Comparative Market Analysis or you can employ an appraiser (at an average cost of $400 - $500) to prepare an appraisal for you.

What factors influence the value of your Lake Mary home?

  • comparable sales
    • factoring in the date of the comparables sale
    • factoring in bank owned foreclosures & short sales
    • factoring in the location - waterfront, golf front, etc.
    • factoring in age of comparables
    • factoring in the size of the comparable - lot and home
    • factoring in condition of comparables
    • factoring in pool vs. no pool
  • improvements you've made to your property - additions or renovations

Analyzing the data on a local level is something a computer program will never be able to do... Sometimes you just need the human touch.

Very true there is no way that Zillow can be correct most of the time.  They do not see the home.

Hi Debbie, I can't begin to tell you how many times I've checked on zillow.com and the home values are so very low.  I also read at one point in time zillow was going to pick up the pace and align to be realistic.  Guess that hasn't happened yet.  Take care, Marie Foxy Interiors
