“When it comes to Zillow’s Zestimates, you have to take the numbers with a grain of salt.”

As the saying goes: “Some things are just too good to be true”.

Great photos of properties (well, most of the time), property facts and features, location, history- so much information  conveniently right at your fingertips.

But for many people across the country, the word of Zillow might as well be the word of God. So, yeah, dangerous.”
