SERIES: Helpful Real Estate Sites –

Welcome to the latest series at – "Helpful Real Estate Sites".

It is my hope that this series will equip you with new information that helps you make excellent real estate decisions!

Part Two –

This is another way to research homes that are for sale in your area.

I like the clean feel of, and its of use.  Here are some additional reasons I like

  • Market Dynamics  Just below the search bar, Zillow provides an up-to-date number of homes that are on the market in the entire US.  I like seeing the macroeconomic view of the housing market.
  • Days on Zillow  A key measure in real estate is "Days on Market" or DOM.  Zillow has created a similar measurement called "Days on Zillow".  This information can be utilized to construct a better offer.
  • Make Me Move Feature  Zillow has a feature where you can list your house without actually listing it.  Basically, you provide a price that you would be willing to sell your house for and if someone decides to purchase your home, the "make me move" happens.  Interesting concept!
  • Recently Sold Feature  This feature allows you to see the houses in your search area that have sold most recently and the price at which they sold.
  • Home Values Index  You can see what homes are selling for you in your area by a number of measures – including $/SF, Selling Price, and flips.

Those are some of the reasons that I love  Have you used this resource before?
