Maybe you’ve heard of a little website called Zillow?
Yes, the real estate selling, buying and data giant that makes most Realtors kinda roll their eyes, most real estate investors pretty much overlook, and most appraisers cringe as homeowners increasingly insist on using their “Zestimate” value, no matter what their dang appraisal says!
Love ‘em or don’t, Zillow’s the
800… 8,000 pound real estate gorilla on the internet that just can’t be discounted anymore.
In their mission to swallow the whole real estate world, you may have also heard rumors that Zillow is now getting into the business of actually buying and selling houses. Well, it’s a fact, and it’ll be interesting to see how that goes.
Personally I’m not so sure how that could work out well, and apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. But that’s a whole ‘nother conversation really.
