I do not understand your vibe in the least. Zillow has some homes that are brand new to the listing. Not all on, are old. You can plainly see when it was listed. Tulia .... All will have the same date it was listed. You are really full of bad energy and must be sad b/c your zip is in the middle of nowhere. Must be a drag once a month when you want to see civilization
Everyone has proven you wrong and you show zero humility. Typical Texan. This is why I am proud I left and lived all over the world. Love TX but important to see the world to know how ignorant we all are in TX.

The only thing you can get within 10 miles of downtown is a scraper for that price.

Go back to Vegas or LA or wherever.
Also, going by friends that just sold their home for 200 within 10 miles of downtown.

The new construction is selling closer or over to 300 though, so prices seem to be creeping closer to that.
Thank you kindly for your contribution. Roamer boy lives far from you but thinks he knows your street better.

Ha! Love the “ignorant Texan” while you complain about my “vibe” in your broken Engrish.

Zillow’s garbage. Your story is fake. Thanks for leaving.

Zillow is notorious for bad/out-dated information, dates shown notwithstanding.

I can't tell you the number of times I have had to explain to a buyer client who insists on using Zillow instead of other, more reliable sources (AustinHomeSearch.com is run by the Austin Board of Realtors and IS the public face of the MLS), that the home they've found that it shows as listed is, indeed, not on the market, hasn't been on the market for weeks, months, in some cases years. Their Zestimates are a joke (even they have said publicly that they consider 50% accuracy to be outstanding). If you insist on relying on Zillow, your credibility will take a serious hit with anyone who actually knows anything about accurate information.

And, no, not everyone has proven them wrong. In fact, my post that you took as validating your claim did not do so, you simply chose to see it that way.

As for your comment about seeing the world, all that shows is how ignorant you are of Texas and Texans in general. Most people I know have not only traveled to other states but traveled to (and in some cases lived in) other countries (not counting Mexico).

I personally prefer realtor.com. Just think it is the easiest to use. I'm not actually looking to buy anything though, so it is more about following the market in my neighborhood than availability. For that, it seems to do the trick to see what goes on and off the market, raising and lowering of list prices and how quickly things go from listed to pending to gone.

I like to use all of them. Zillow just pops up first. I did sell a house in LA,CA on Zillow rather fast.

The guy was just rude so I replied the same. I should not go to his level. You did validate my point. Warmest.

I am a Texan, why do you act like I am not?
This is rhetorical. Does your boss know at the realtor office you call potential customers home shopping ignorant? Rhetorical.
