Are Zestimates accurate? 

Zillow is the most popular online real estate information site, with over 70 million unique visitors per month. Zillow provides information on houses that are not on the market as well as active listings of properties for sale.

According to Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff, Zillow Zestimates are “a good starting point” but nationwide Zestimates have a “median error rate” of about +/- 8%. On a $500,000 house, a seller is looking at a $40,000 disparity — which can potentially distort the perceived market value of a listing.

So what’s the takeaway?  When buying and selling, keep in mind that Zestimates are no more than starting points in pricing discussions with the real authorities on local real estate values — experienced agents and appraisers.
