Zillow = Not making any friends with these numbers February 8, 2006

Posted by Zack W. Handley in Web 2.0.

Zillow beta launched today with the typical Oops! Our Site is Down that happens when high profile launch intersects with Housing Bubble Mania. I was able to access the site for a while and Boy Howdee! Zillow is not gonna be making any friends with Valuation numbers like these! No sireee!

I am not sure how the ‘valuations’ are arrived (because the site is down) but I will tell you some folks I know just sold their houses for 10-15% more than these numbers would suggest is the *right* price, whatever that means.

Cool Idea and I will continue my ‘research’ when the site comes back up but from my 3 initial searches I would conclude the data ain’t quite there yet.
