A little over 2 years ago, I compared the sales prices of 10 Spring Texas homes to their Zestimates.
The results of the 2009 analysis were:
Since I am frequently asked about the Zestimate, I figured it was due time to perform another comparison. I chose 10 Spring Texas homes that sold within the last six months and compared their sales prices to the Zestimates.
The results of the 2011 analysis were:
What I found interesting was in 2009 the Zestimate was higher in 80% of the instances but in 2011 the Zestimate was lower in 80% of the instances.
If you were buying a house in 2009 in Spring Texas and you checked the Zestimate, you probably thought you were getting a deal. Today if you used the Zestimate to check the value of a Spring Texas house, you would think you are over paying.
The Zestimate is just that an estimate. Zillow does not send anybody out to view the interior and exterior of the homes to evaluate their condition. If you truly want to know the value (not an estimate / guesstimate) of a Spring Texas house, contact a Realtor. You can contact me at 281.804.8626 or my working partner (Rick Ratchford) at 281.300.3141.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
