Zillow.com Check real estate prices

www.zillow.com this site gives a satellite picture and then gives prices pretty close to the actual value of houses. Kind of interesting.

I guess living in the sticks I will have to wait 5-10 years before we catch up with modern technology. :frusty:

Re: Zillow.com Check real estate prices

Neat idea, and the pictures are cool, but it's laughably wrong.

Re: Zillow.com Check real estate prices

I searched Arena Dr Landover MD, and you could zoom in on Fedex. I thought that was pretty cool.

Of course since it wasn't a house it didnt have any sale information.

The estimated value is 15% less than what I paid for it 3 years ago. It's probably 35% less than the sales price of homes similar to mine, minus improvements completed in 2004. It's 43% less than the assessed value of my home, and at least 50% less than the actual sales value of my home.

So, it's off by a factor of 2x for my house, which is 100% (or is that 200%?). It's off by a factor of 1.5x for houses without my improvements.
