wasco county real estate: How Accurate are Zestimates in Wasco County? - 10/20/17 02:31 PM
Many homeowners use Zillow's Zestimates when they try to determine the price of their home.  Zillow will even email a monthly Zestimate update to homeowners if requested.  Just how accurate are Zestimates in Wasco River County.  Short answer, not very accurate or reliable.  The algorithms used need a large population with an associated large number of homes. Wasco County does not have enough homes to measure the Zillow accuracy.  Instead, the Wasco County Zestimate for your home is the Tax Assessor's value (which is not very accurate either), or one star in their 4-star rating system.  
Instead of relying on inaccurate or outdated information, call … (5 comments)
