Real Estate Heat Maps from Zillow

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.

  1. If you want to see a state-of-the-art real estate application, I suggest you check out the product I am releasing this month. This product allows you to see location quality for any U.S. metro area with a population of 10,000 or more – on your desktop. It is free right now, but will be a fee-based site later this month.

    For info, go to read about the product and then visit If you google “Submarket Analyst” you can see what others are saying about this cool tool.

    P.S. Good site, Joe Duck!

  2. In a recent study, the majority of kids ages 12-15 are spending their summer days in front of the computer, watching movies and television, and shopping at
    the malls. Aikido focuses on realizing synchronization between ‘ki’
    (spirit) and ‘tai’ (the body). You need to find a way to change the way you think about food,
    in order to avoid the bad habit of overeating.
