Zillow.com Check real estate prices
 
[url]www.zillow.com[/url] this site gives a satellite picture and then gives prices pretty close to the actual value of houses. Kind of interesting.

thats amazing. I totally redid my bathroom and kitchen though, so the price for my condo is way off.

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

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

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.

[QUOTE=FRPLG]100%?? Srriously what do you mean? Is the sales info off or are just the estimates?[/QUOTE]

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.
