Lawsuit: Zillow Ruined My Ability to Get a Decent Offer

Lawsuit: Zillow Ruined My Ability to Get a Decent Offer | SAN ANTONIO HOMES TODAY | Scoop.it
A real estate developer who owns a $150 million spec home says the site falsely recorded that the property was sold for millions less.
Al Cannistra's insight:

I’m not in the business of prejudging this one – but it is worthy of a heads up. IMO REALTORS® remain the best source for pricing your home – and marketing it for you. Local agents are licensed and trained like many other professionals. We know the business and the LOCAL market. The idea that homes are a commodity to be priced and sold like pots and pans or used cars is absurd. There are many variables. Mistakes can be costly – even catastrophic.

 

Fast forward to the latest fad concept of making the move painless by selling your home to a corporation and just moving on. Common sense says the corporations involved in the buying and reselling are doing so for a profit. Somebody loses money – somebody makes money – somebody figured out a way to create a middle entity to be that money maker. The marketing is not unlike everything else today – selling “convenience”. It is a shift from maximizing the return on your investment. If you have the money and do not wish to be inconvenienced, maybe it is right for you.
