Who made Zillow the real estate God??

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere/lane county 200305001

This may seem as a rant and it might be. My best friend that I sold a home to a few years ago, is always saying, "Zillow said".

I am constantly at listing appointments and told I'm wrong, "Zillow said".

Last week I was at an HOA meeting where I live, and brought MLS sheets on 2 new listings and was told "We know, Zillow said".

A few weeks ago I encountered Buyers that said we passed on your home because "ZILLOW SAID the HOA fees were monthly". Not true. But as an agent on the street daily I am wrong, because "Zillow said".

Lastly, we have a home that shows on Zillow as a repo, call an agent. Constantly I am told "Zillow said". So why do you not know the price and when we can see it? It even shows pictures of the interior with furniture, that I can only guess came from when it was on the market about a dozen years ago. Zillow SAID. What say you??

Hello Rob! Haven't seen you around in ages! When someone brings up Zillow to me, I start laughing then I explain to them why I refer to them a Zdevil and they get it. But that being said, we as an industry allowed Zillow to coop our roles with consumers and now we pay the price.

I can't count how many times I've encountered sellers at listing presentations who, after I've shown them the comps I've pulled to discuss a price, say "But Zillow said my house was worth much more". Aagh
