Zillow Zillow is Arrogantly Ruining The Sale of My House Internet, Internet
21st of Sep, 2011 by User464617
I never authorized Zillow to show/display my house.
The information Zillow displays is inaccurate yet it is impossible to contact anyone there. I sent letters to Zillow corporate and as usual, the arrogance of Zillow rears its head. My house is listed at $1,075,000 and I recently received an offer of $900,000, whiich I rejected.
Zillow displays its own value for my house at $438,000, $484,000 and $625,000 (three different Zestimates under three different addrsss spellings yet the very same house). Recently, two prospective buyers said they would not make an offer for my house because of the published, posted Zillow Zestimates (again, three different Zestimates for the very same house under three different address spellings). Zillow has absolutely no foundation for its numbers, has no authorization from me to display my house , and absolutely wraps itself in layers of corporate insulation so that there is no chance of communicating or having a discussion with a Zillow rep to get this resolved. Zillow is a cancer on the real estate industry and should be made to show how it arrives at its figures. It should also explain how it takes authorization upon itself to disply houses and house specs without authorization.

I believe you can "take ownership" of a profile or listing of any house featured on the site. Once you do so, you should be able to correct any errors as well as add information that may account for any differences in the zestimate pricing and the actual value of the hoe. For example additions you made, renovations, upgrades. I have not been on the site in several years but when I had a similar issue that is how I ended up dealing with it. I had some similar issues, but this was before the bubble burst in the market and it was a sellers market with highly inflated prices that people were not apt to question. I think they arrive at home values based on a very simple formula that takes into account the neighborhood, prices fetched from recent home sales nearby, square footage and other known facts then look for a median. The price difference you noted in your post is very large and may be an error as I have not seen such a disparity before. If you are represented by a realtor they should be able to handle the issue I would assume. Redfin is another similar site. You should see if your home is listed there and if so, what are the specs. Good luck...it is silly that potential buyers are looking at the site and using it as a gauge.
