3 Reasons that Miami Realtor valuations are more accurate than Zillow or Trulia…

June 24, 2012

    

 

Oftentimes, the sellers that we interview prior to listing their Miami homes for sale are gauging the value of their home based on Zillow and Trulia estimates.  We find that these Trulia and Zillow estimates are often not representative of true market value.  These estimates frequently err on the high and the low side.

These estimates can be an indication of value for Miami home sellers but they do not take into consideration intagible factors that a local, professional realtor will.

Here are the 3 Reasons that Miami Realtor valuations are more accurate than Zillow and Trulia…

1)  Updates..a professional Miami Realtor will take into consideration the cost of updates of one home vs. another when calculating value.

2)  Seasonality…a professional Miami Realtor knows that a single family home in Coconut Grove, Coral Gables or Pinecrest will attract more buyer interest between late January to July than August to December.  Therefore, this factor must be considered when assigning a value to list a home.  Zillow does not do this.

3)  Subtle differences in property locations…a professional Miami Realtor knows that a home on a quiet street generally attracts more buyer interest than one on busy street.  Zillow does not factor this in.
