What's My Home Really Worth

What’s My Home Worth?

Everyone is curious to know what their home is worth.  Zillow pulls in tons of people everyday looking at their ZESTIMATE. Well, we hate to ruin it for you but we have found the Zestimates to be wrong on almost every occasion. Not just a little bit wrong, but in some cases by several hundred thousand. After all, it’s just an algorithm based on homes within a certain radius. The computer doesn't know if the house across the street has 1970s foil wallpaper and shag carpet, or if they just remodeled the entire place. In 2020, the average Zestimate was off by 4 - 6%, and upwards of 12% in some situations. In fact, even according to Zillow, "It is not an appraisal and it should be used as a starting point.  We encourage buyers, sellers, and homeowners to supplement the Zestimate with...a Comparative Home Analysis (CMA) from a Realtor."  So, all it really is is a Guesstimate, and that's what we've named it in our Seller Center.
