Does Zillow have bad data? Many buyers around the country are using the Zillow site to search for listings and look at Zestimates on properties. As an insider in the real estate industry for 37 years, I have seen just about every gimmick and and many good and bad marketing strategies. Buyers and all consumers of real estate information should be put on notice that the answer to the question, “Does Zillow have bad data?” is a big yes. I recommend watching this video from the President of a large real estate company. Jim Abbott, president of the Abbott Realty Group and a 20-year real estate veteran in San Diego, recently announced plans to pull listings from Trulia, Realtor.com, Zillow and other online real estate sites. What Jim says in this video is absolutely true. Beware buyers. I do not recommend using Zillow if you want accurate information. There are local MLS sites (Sequim Real Estate) that are 100% accurate and that do not use gimmicks to use you to generate paid leads for other agents.
Does Zillow Have Bad Data?
If you are a buyer shopping for property in the Sequim or Port Angeles area, I recommend using a local MLS site that actually has reliable and accurate listing information and which connects with local real estate brokers without selling ads to any Tom, Dick, or Jane just to capture your lead. Zillow is terribly unreliable folks. Terribly. Now you know the answer to the question, “Does Zillow have bad data?“
