Am looking into SOLD and so looking into Zillow, and you appear to correct about its valuations.

We bought our house in Sept of '04 and according to Zillow, it has appreciated 50%! (You don't imagine anyone at Zillow would buy it, do you?) Further definite errors in the site's info.:

--the site overstates the square footage by 18%

--it says there are five bedrooms when there are in fact four (no, there's no room that might be mistaken for a fifth bedroom by anyone other than a college student)

--it says there are three bathrooms when there are four, or 2.5 if you count one w/no tub/shower.

--there are eight or nine, not seven rooms

The l;ittle graph that shows appreciation over five years puts the house's value at the time we bought 28% higher than the price we paid. Just thought I'd second the report.
