Can you trust Zillow to give you an accurate home valuation? The truth is, you really can’t.


In most cases, Zillow’s Zestimates are off by 5% to 15%. Zillow uses a basic algorithm that pulls information from similar homes in your neighborhood. Zillow cannot take your new kitchen, special location, or incredible views into account.

The best way to find your home value is to talk to a professional real estate agent. We can see what improvements you have made to your home and compare it to other, similar properties.

Zillow is a great tool to get an idea of your home’s value, but it’s not accurate. If you’re curious about how much your home is worth or you have other questions, give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help you!
