Zillow Launches Their iPhone App

Real Estate Agent with ShowMeOKC Real Estate Pros of KW Elite 148333

Being a huge tech junkie, I always enjoy new gadgets, especially if they have some useful function that helps me with my day-to-day real estate work, and I'm always looking for the latest and greatest iPhone apps.

Well, Zillow just launched a new app that appears to have some useful functions.  Now, I'm not a big fan of Zillow's 'Zestimates' because I've found major variances between their numbers and the real numbers in my market, both for the plus and the minus.  I've seen houses over-zestimated by $50K and I've seen other under-zestimated by $50K, so I wouldn't advise anyone to use Zillow's numbers as a guide to determining the value of a home they're thinking about buying or selling, but this new app does show you some public record information about most given properties, based on your GPS location.

So, let's say you're driving down the street and you're curious when a particular home last sold, or how much it sold for... you can find that out immediately with this app.  You can also find out the asking price of a house that's for sale as you drive by.

I haven't had a chance to fully test this app, so I'm not making any claims yet, but it's worth the money (FREE) to download it and see if it's useful to you in any way.  Here are a few screenshots that show the map view and what it looks like if you tap on a house:

Zillow should spend more time, effort & $$$ trying to get their site right before they branch out into other areas. I can't remember seeing "zestimate" that was on target in my area.

Ryan, this is a great solution to the question, "How much is that house?" when you're out with buyers.
