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 speak from personal experience. She guided us through the purchase of our new home during this crazy 2021 seller's market.
Jill educated us on all the aspects of buying a new home and selling our home as well. Helping us to choose what options best suited our circumstances. She was always very accessible, thorough, and patient answering all of our questions and concerns.
We had a challenging list of "must haves" for our new home and she was always on the lookout for homes that met our needs. All through the process of house hunting, making an offer, and through to closing she was efficient, professional, and always put our interests first. Her excellent negotiation skills ended up saving us thousands of dollars!
I am already singing her praises to friends and family and I highly recommend Jill Wente as your next realtor! read less
