As a Randolph NJ real estate agent, one that has been in the business for almost 10 years, I can remember when Zillow and Zestimates were all the rage. Zillow launched in beta form back in 2006. Back then, real estate agents like me, thought Zillow revolutionized the way we evaluate property values.There was a time when a Zestimate, Zillow’s version of fair market value of a home, would be fairly accurate. . .but that time was short lived.The following blog post will highlight 10 reasons why you should NOT trust your Zestimate and in essence why Zillow fails to be accurate. I am not here to bash Zillow. There are plenty of angry homeowners who have voiced their frustrations with the inaccuracies of Zestimates. As much as I would love to bash Zillow, I would argue that there is some value to Zillow, but not in the form that you would imagine.

On Line Free Home Value Report
Reasons Why Zillow’s Home Values Are Not To Be Trusted
Reason 1: Location is only one of three primary contributing factors that comprises a home’s market value. Zillow doesn’t take into consideration two other key variables: pricing and condition of your home in relation to other available homes on the market.
The novelty of using using Zillow is having the ability to insert your address or neighborhood into its search feature for a “real time” home value estimate or a Zestimate within seconds. The problem with Zillow’s algorithm is it incorrectly assumes that your neighbor’s home, which would generally be in close proximity to your home, is truly comparable to your home. Zillow does not know about the number of “capital” improvements you have made over the years as in a new kitchen, furnace, roof, or the addition you put on your home. Zillow does not know that your neighbor had an underground oil tank or wood paneling throughout his/her house that made your neighbor’s home tremendously unattractive to home buyers when it sold. These important data points, like upkeep, updating, additions, heating type, clutter, odor, bad paint jobs can affect real estate values in real life. Let’s not forget that the vice versa could also be true: if your home lacks capital improvements, curb appeal, faces the wrong direction, Zillow’s computer will never know about it. And for this reason alone, you should look, laugh and place to value a Zestimate.
Reason 2 Zillow Can Be Duped.
In the past, for sale by owners, these are homeowners not represented by a real estate agent, could list their home for sale on Zillow and set a ridiculous prices called a Make Me Move Price. Make Me Move is a function that allows homeowners the ability to “test” the market without a homeowner having to use a broker or real estate agent. I can not say for certain whether or not the Make Me Move prices is an element of Zillow’s Zestimate calculation, but if you are inserting your own address into Zillow’s search bar and you look at the results map at a glance, you might see a number of overpriced homes available homes for sale and hence set an over-priced asking price for your home. I met several homeowners on Zillow who priced their homes as high as $700,000 when in reality there home value was closer to $500,000. I know what you are thinking. Zillow says my home is worth more? In reality true market value is based on what a real life buyer is willing to pay for your home at the time in the market.
Reason 3 Zillow has a hard time differentiating between different property styles and types.
Zillow can not distinguish between a cape versus a bi-level or even a single family home versus a mother daughter or a multifamily property; It can’t tell the difference between condos from single family detached homes. Cape style homes are generally significantly smaller than a bi-level or split level home, which this style difference does and should influence the home’s value over another. When Zillow Zestimates do not take these property style differences into consideration, you are likely to get highly inaccurate Zestimates.
Reason 4 Zillow Documents Private Sales which can be a double edge sword.
As an agent, I value the private sales information. Although, I know that private sales i.e. sales between friends or family members or even a for sale by owner and buyer, nets a homeowner on average 8-10% less than if their home sold with MLS or broker exposure . This information of private sales, which comes directly from tax records skews Zestimates if in fact private sales are considered in Zillow’s Zestimate, but then again, at a glance, you might inaccurately assume that your home value is comparable to a sale that sold for less than its fair market value.
Reason 5 Zillow knows its inaccurate and they do not care!
At the bottom of the Zillow website, there is a tiny link called Values and Accuracy. On this page you will find a decoder ring to help you understand whether or not your Zestimate is accurate. It looks something like this. In some cases, the index tells you that they are super inaccurate, off by 27% in some cases. This inaccuracy is not something that Zillow wants you to know about or they would have made it more prevalent on their website. I had a hard time looking for it myself and if you are an unsuspecting homeowner, you might have missed it altogether. Zillow Accuracy Chart NJ

Reason 6 Zesimates do not distinguish between homes sales that were foreclosed on or sold at short sale.
Arguably, when you sale your home and have it appraised, a appraiser will make every effort to look for homes that were not discounted due to a desperate seller’s hardship situation. An appraiser will in some cases, make an active effort not to include homes that foreclosed (i.e. sold through an bank repossession). Although, if the market is saturated with distress properties, you will more than likely have to included distress homes as comparable (comps) to your home. But again, Zillow at a glance does not separate normal resale from short sale or foreclosures.
Reason 7 Zillow does not correct correctable inaccuracies.
I participate in Zillow’s Advice, which is their question and answer forum where buyers and sellers can connect or pose questions to other buyers and sellers and even real estate agents. I often see homeowners who complain when they find their home is still listed for sale on Zillow or the sold price of there home is not accurate. This is what I call correctable inaccuracies. I do not see the customer service department responding to those homeowners even though I know they monitor and police the forum. I do not see them making changes to incorrect sold prices. This is problematic and increases the margin of error of Zillow’s data.
Reason 8 To be fair to Zillow, I think I have done enough Zillow bashing and explaining why Zillow is not accurate, they do allow homeowners the ability to create an estimate.
This feature allows you to select other data points such as amenities, bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, etc that can influence your home’s value. I am a homeowner and as much as I love my home, I am not so sure that I would be able to pick comparable homes objectively. Zillow does allows you to subscribe to your home’s report on Zillow and have the option of requesting similar listings when they come on the market and when similar home sell. I have the ability to do this as well and since I am tapped into several different Multiple Listing Services (for NJ that is), where 90% of all property sales take place, it would be prudent of you to set up a auto email campaign with Zillow in addition to setting up a just sold email campaign with an agent like me.
Reason 9 Zillow needs to do a better job policing Realtors or Agents that abuse Zillow.
I know of hundreds of listings on Zillow that are listed by a broker and have sold yet they still appear as active homes for sales. If they are still listed for sale, their sales data does not appear on the just sold properties, which would be important information for you to know.
Reason 10: At the end of the day, zillow encourages you to contact a real estate agent.
Zillow, by their own admission, wants you to verify that the information you received on Zillow is consistent with an real estate agent’s opinion because only real estate agents have access to 90% of all property sales and only good agents will know which amenities, neighborhoods, property styles, updates and selling situations will give you a true outlook on your current or future home’s value. When in doubt, ask a human or even better, a professional real estate agent.

house-dollarbills2There are a lot of things you can’t control in the home-selling process. You can’t force people to come see your home or make an offer on it. But you can make sure to take care of some easy repairs that would otherwise turn off prospective buyers. Look around and make sure you haven’t ignored any of these 10 repairs that can make a buyer think twice about your asking price.
1. Paint colors that just don’t blend in
The color of your home is one of the first things a buyer will notice. If it’s a very different color from your neighborhood or general area, you should paint it something more innocuous.Most buyers don’t want to live in the only pink house in town.
The same goes for the interior. If your living room is bright orange, paint over it. Choose a neutral color so buyers can project their own ideas onto it.
2. A front door that’s not inviting
The front door is one of the next things a buyer will notice. If the door is flimsy, cheap, or outdated, it’ll discourage the buyer before it’s even opened. Spring for a new one—it’s the most reliable update you can perform to recoup your cost.
3. A busted doorbell
While you’re at it, don’t forget the doorbell! Having one that works with a friendly, crisp chime is a sign that your house has been well taken care of.
4. Tattered window and door screens
Buyers will notice screens that look more like Swiss cheese than insect shields. You don’t necessarily have to spring for a whole new set—just grab some screen repair patches (they’re cheap) and fill in the tears.
5. Depressing landscaping
As potential buyers drive up to your home, they’ll notice everything—the trees, the grass, the rock pathway, and the plants out front. And it matters. If your lawn is home to a half-dead tree, yellowing grass, unkempt shrubs, and a pathway swallowed by weeds, you might get more lowball offers than you anticipated.
Keep the plants trimmed and the grass freshly cut. Make sure the walkway is clear and fallen branches are removed from the lawn. A fresh layer of mulch will brighten up the outside, too.
6. An unpleasant smell of … something
Nothing can turn a buyer off faster than the stench of faded cigarettes or poorly trained pets. Of course, it’s hard for us to smell our homes after we’ve lived in them for a while, so ask a diplomatic friend to sniff your place. If it stinks, start cleaning.
7. Eerie dripping sounds
If potential buyers hear a dripping faucet or running toilet when touring the house, they might start questioning the building’s integrity or the seller’s level of care. These are quick DIY fixes that shouldn’t go ignored.
8. Bad lighting
Replace harsh lights with bulbs that have a softer glow. Clean out light fixtures to get rid of dirt or dead bugs that can mute the lighting (not to mention look gross).
9. Squeaky hinges
Doors that groan when they open are for horror movies, not homes for sale. Grab a lubricant (such as white lithium grease, but in a pinch you can use cooking oil) and grease the hinges to stop the squeak.
10. An outdated kitchen
Completely renovating a kitchen can get real expensive, real fast. Keep it simple by adding a fresh coat of paint. Although we did say you should keep paint colors neutral, here’s where you can try something more inviting—like pale yellow, a color we associate with light and joy. Switch out old cabinet knobs and handles for something fresher like nickel cup pulls.

The Shongum Lake is a private lake community which offers a resort like community right in your own backyard. Families who live near the lake and whom are members of the lake walk to the lake in the summer for family outings, ice-skate on the lake during the winter, and jog around the picturesque neighborhood in the fall and spring. Friday nights in the summer are Happy Hour where families and friends gather to enjoy the lake, weather, and each other’s company. Parties at the Lake House are always a big hit and parties for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are huge community events that are truly fun for the whole family
