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.

I cannot harp on how wonderful Jill has been during my new home build purchase! She has gone above and beyond by attending every single meeting that I had (design center meeting, electrical, blue tape meeting, final acceptance meeting, closing). During the design appointment, Jill gave pointers on what upgrades would have the best resell value and how much I would see out of it. It was my first time going through the new home building process so it helped make the meeting way less stressful. Jill has been there for me every step of the process even after the closing! I truly have never met a more passionate, hard working individual! I would HIGHLY recommend! read less
