Ask an Expert, Big Bear Real Estate

Brutally Honest Big Bear Real Estate

Yes, I do know the market better than Zillow.

Believe it or not a Real Estate agent that works the local market will have a better feel for property values than a computer. While I agree that Zillow should not be ignored completely, using Zillow as the tool for pricing Real Estate can be a disaster.

Two examples of this currently are:

43046 Sunset Drive, Moonridge 

Zillow Zestimate $232,000

In escrow at $176,000


801 Barker, Big Bear City

Zillow Zestimate $147,500

In escrow at $98,100


This represents a 38.4% inaccuracy from Zillow. You might as well get a dart board and start throwing.
