Zillow is really a helpful application for real estate. Check out this heat map of Silicon Valley Real Estate prices, giving you an idea of the most expensive areas here. Zillow’s got them for several metro regions.
I’ve been looking at some houses to buy as investments in Ashland Oregon and Zillow’s been helpful, though I think it’s a mistake to put too much stock in their Zestimates. For example Zillow estimates the value at a place offered at 429k to be 541k and another at 300k to be valued at 379k. As much as I’d like to turn an instant profit of 100k and 79k I think the estimate is simply way out of whack with the prevailing Ashland Real Estate conditions which suggest that…. things are not selling well and prices are going to go down.
