On at least one occasion I've had an experienced agent mock me for giving any credence to Zillow Zestimates surrounding a home. In this article, I wanted to set the record straight about why I feel it's a good idea for me to point buyers to area Zestimates prior to seeing a home where the surrounding Zestimates were substantially lower than the list price of the home. I'll also be providing some other information in the process such as regarding the Zestimate value prior to listing vs the actual value of the home.
