Time to buy? It makes more sense now than ever before, for lots of reasons including this one. Renting does make sense for some people and certain circumstances. But if you can afford the down payment for a home, you must consider buying one — and soon. Interest rates remain low amidst stock market fluctuations, but according to most financial experts those rates will be rising in the near future.

No Surprise: “Zestimates” are Usually Wrong

We won’t argue the fact that Zillow can be a useful tool. But it’s a tool with serious accuracy problems. As the LA Times notes, “nationwide Zestimates have a ‘median error rate’ of about 8%.”

8%? In the LA marketplace that’s a huge number, often translating to tens of thousands of dollars. If you’re looking to buy or sell a house, wouldn’t you like a more accurate idea of what it’s worth? Something more than generic sales data crunched into an algorithm?

Kick your Zillow habit. In the real world, houses have unique traits and nuances that speak volumes about their value. Having sold more Eastside homes than any other realtors for two years straight, we can safely say that we are market experts, with inside access to timely, reliable, accurate information. No “Zestimates” here. Just carefully thought-out analysis and an honest assessment of worth.
