10 Reasons Why Zillow Is Wrong

76.6% of Zillow estimates are within 10% from the home sale price. That's a 40,000 error on a 400,000 home!

  • Zillow doesn’t know that the county info is wrong and you really only have two bedrooms, not three.
  • Zillow doesn't know how busy is your street, how trashy is your neighbor and how about the view.
  • Zillow doesn't know curb appeal.
  • Zillow doesn’t know you have a $20,000 structural crack in your foundation that needs repair. 
  • Zillow doesn’t know that your roof is on its last leg and needs replacement. 
  • Zillow doesn’t know you have a major easement running through your backyard that limits its use. 
  • Zillow doesn’t know you just dumped 50,000 on kitchen remodel.
  • Zillow doesn't know your back yard is slopped.
  • Zillow doesn't know how your pets are smelling.


IMPORTANT: Zillow does know which homes are in PENDING, but the site doesn't use this info when they form their home values. Zillow is using past comps, but ignoring present market condition.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

"Dave is a realtor I would highly recommend. He does his research, works hard for his clients and is an excellent negotiator. He made sure we secured the house we wanted and helped us to sell our house for top dollar."

Stephanie & Steve Belinge 

Dave was very responsive, available for our hectic schedules, and great with any explanations and bargaining. He was very knowledgeable of the market we were shopping in.

Mark & Michelle Stickley

We hadn’t a bought a house in a long time and Dave was patient in answering all of our questions as well flexible when we changed our mind on the house we wanted and also very responsive. It was a pleasure working with Dave.

Sylvie Peterson

We bought a home our dream home in Bonney Lake Washington contingent on the sale of our home in California Bay Area and so thankful Dave was recommended to us by our financial advisor. Our situation was complicated by being outside the US and Covid restrictions on travel. Dave’s knowledge, expertise, solid reasoning was immediately apparent. We quickly felt this was someone we could rely on who had our best interests in mind. I appreciated his thoughtful review and opinions on home inspection issues, bringing up considerations outside anything we had thought of. This guy works hard. The consistent communication was 5 star service. We had a polar opposite experience selling our home in California which was full of frustration, anxiety and distrust. Consider yourself in great hands choosing Dave as you agent. Thank you, thank you from the Symons-Hopper family!

Shane Kyla

"We have known Dave for years and choosing him as our realtor was a no-brainer. Not only does he know Vancouver well, he is upfront and provides accurate and honest information. Working with him was easy from beginning to end and we always felt confident that he had our best interests in mind. Dave is an excellent negotiator and stands firm for what his clients want. We definitely recommend Dave and would work with him again!"

Rebecca Driscoll

I met David over a year ago at an Open House on our street. I told him that we would not be listing our home for at least a year but I would like to know the appropriate value. He ran comps of houses in our area and reviewed them with me.
When the time came to list the property I asked him to present a marketing plan. He and his realtor partner presented an interesting plan. I was impressed with their professional demeanor and knowledge of the real estate market. I liked their plan and decided to list with them .
We listed the house on a Friday and by Monday seven offers had been written. Six of those offers were above asking price.
I found David to be knowledgeable, available, helpful and a good communicator. He was eager to help in any way possible. We were very pleased with his suggestions and felt he knew the area and value
of property in our area.

Berdell Nelson

Working with Dave was the best choice we could have made as first time home buyers. We didn’t know any realtors in the area and actually met him at an open house we just happened to drive past. We were set at ease by his knowledge of the area and his professionalism. We have met high pressure realtors before and he was definitely not that.

Dave did such a great job working with our schedule seeing seeing many houses over 4 months. At every showing, he helped us fairly evaluate the home for our needs and wants. We bought during a very tight and competitive market and Dave helped us navigate through several multiple offer situations. Ultimately we were able to lock down our new home with a creative offer that was tailored to the seller’s specific needs because Dave was in such great communication with the sellers agent. With his help, we were able to beat higher priced offers.

We are truly blessed to have met Dave at that open house and highly recommend his services to anyone!
