Zillow is a website that lists home’s currently for sale, shows past purchase prices, and estimates home prices. Using a map overlay, Zillow makes finding homes in the area you’re looking for easy.
The Zillow iPhone app is a very useful tool and pretty faithful translation of the tools available on their website. Using the iPhone’s location, the app can bring up homes in the area you’re currently in which is great while driving in a neighboorhood you’re interested in.
Zillow’s estimate feature is where most people have an issue. The estimate is usually more than the house is worth to the buyer and less than the house is worth to the seller. While the Zillow estimate may not be accurate, it is useful for comparing different homes in the neighborhood and fun to see what Zillow thinks your neighbor’s house is worth.
The free Zillow app is a must have for those brave (smart?) souls in the market for a new house.
