    I’m sorry, but it’s true—Zillow sucks.

    Sellers use this site to get a Zestimate and find out how much their home is worth, and a Zestimate—according to Zillow themselves—can be off my as much as 4.9% in Seattle. It can be off by even bigger margins depending on the area. 4.9% is just the median!

    “A Zestimate can be off by as much 4.9%.”

    Let’s think about that for a second. If your house is really worth $500,000 and you use Zillow to find out how much it’s worth, your Zestimate could be off be as much as $25,000. Is that really where you want to go to make a financial decision about your house?
