Should You Trust Zillow and Trulia?

A lot of my real estate clients in Greenville use online real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia, and while these websites are great places to begin your home search, they are not the answer.

As you will see, they are often wildly inaccurate with home values, and their listings are not updated very often. These websites do not have access to the multiple listing service, so they use algorithms that can be as close as 10% and off by as much as 50%.

We often find that a client wants to view a home that they found on Zillow, and unfortunately, we have to tell them that it is no longer available for purchase.

If you really want to know what your property is worth, the best thing that you can do is to get an appraisal. As agents we can give you a close estimate, but you should really refer to a professional appraiser.

Also, if you want an updated list of homes, please be sure to talk to your local real estate agent.
They have access to the MLS and can give you accurate and updated information on which properties are available for purchase.

There is nothing wrong with using Zillow or Trulia, but you should not rely on those websites for accurate information. It's a good starting point, but if you're serious about buying in Greenville or Upstate South Carolina, then come and talk to us.

You can contact us via phone or email and we would be more than happy to help you find your dream home.
