Today's question is - Is Zillow accurate? Is zillow accurate is a very good question. Zillow gives a starting point it's a general idea of the value of your home. They do not walk through your home or look at relevant comparables or add or subtract your upgrades, because they don't know them. They use the  existing tax records whether they are accurate or not. Zillow is better at valuing some homes than others but it is not meant to be an exact valuation too. It is a benchmark tool to watch the market but I would not bet on the accuracy of their valuation.

If you would like a more accurate valuation of your home that looks at your upgrades and relevant comparables, I would love to help you.
