Zillow has been taking a lot of heat from Real Estate professionals and people selling their homes in general. A great site for a curious voyeur who wants to know what the neighbors house is worth. There has been too many inaccuracies on pricing.
The CEO and founder of Zillow started Expedia with the goal of eliminating the travel agent. Much controversy came about with Zillow as if they were trying to eliminate the real estate professional.. Zillow insists that it's business model is strictly geared towards advertising revenue. Only a real estate professional can give you an accurate value as to what your home is worth. There are just too many factors to consider that a computer can't generate. Although I do find it amusing to go on Zillow and search different areas. Zillow is working on fixing all these inaccuracies.
There is also a make me move tool which homeowners can list a dream price that would make them move.
Let me know your thoughts on Zillow
