Why a Zestimate Is Not an Accurate Way to Estimate Your Home's Value

Zillow's Zestimate is simply an algorithm, that is only as accurate as the data behind it, meaning that it may be outdated or incorrect.

Zestimates should only be used as a broad guideline. It should not, in any way, be considered an appraisal.

A comparable market analysis from a local real estate agent and a professional appraisal of the home are the best ways to learn your home's true value.

What my clients say
Laura was absolutely outstanding in our search for a home...It had everything we wanted and more. We put in an offer and did not think we stood a chance. Laura called us that Sunday ecstatic!! We won! She helped out so much in rushing the offer to the owners and making sure we had everything lined up. After the offer was accepted, she kept helping to ensure a smooth buying process. She sent us flowers on...
