FAQ: Are you on Zillow?
One question that sellers ask us from time to time is “Are you on Zillow?”
The short answer is yes.
Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, Homesnap, and countless other real estate sites get their information directly from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Green Light Real Estate participates in the MLS. If you really want to go deep, the MLS that Vermont is in is the New England Real Estate Network, or NEREN. That means that all of our listings can be found on sites such as Zillow, as well as any other real estate site that buyers use.
We know that many buyers like to use Zillow to look for homes. We post all of our listings and our past sales on Zillow, as well as all of our reviews from past clients, because this is the type of information that buyers like to see.
And when your house is for sale, you want your real estate brokerage to do the things that buyers like!
Last, we have just a couple of cautions about using real estate portals such as Zillow.
First, they’re not always accurate. Sometimes they show a house is for sale when it really isn’t. If you’re ever unsure, just call, text, or email Green Light Real Estate and we can verify.
Second, their estimates of value are not always very accurate. The value of a house is not simply an algorithm. It’s not just a mathematical function of the square feet, zip code, number of bedrooms, and lot size. Condition, layout, micro-location, updates and much, much more factor into the value.
We recently listed a house for sale at 174% of the Zestimate, because that’s what the local market and recent comparable sales indicated.
It went under contract in two days. At full asking price.
