My Love/Hate Relationship With Zillow

January 2nd, 2009 at 10:36 am

So I got an email from zillow yesterday happily informing me that my home value has decreased another $5,500. Geez - Happy New Year to you too!

I've heard a lot of people who don't feel that zillow is very accurate, but it's been pretty consistent for my home based on some other stuff I've looked at. I think was irks/bums me out more is that I live in an area where they main type of people are "stretching couples". These are couples who are characterized as high income, high-expense surburban couples. I am two out of three, not sure how good or bad that is.

For the month of December I was on vacation for the first week - stuck working from home for about 1.5 weeks due to bad weather/road conditions and then on vacation for almost 2 weeks, where I've been anti-productive. Monday will be a culture shock when I have to meet my vanpool at 7am!

    I hadn't looked at zillow for a long time. When it first got popular, I looked up my house and learned that they didn't have info for my area. I just checked again and they do now have pricing info. The price listed for our house is accurate. What it really bizarre is that not only is there the aerial photo but there is actually a photo of the front of the house taken from across the street. I wonder how they got that.

    That freaked me out when I saw that too Steve. In the old house where we lived is a clear photo of the house and you can even pan around the neighborhood.
