Zillow: House Hunting Made Easier

If you are looking for a real estate website that does it all, look no further than zillow.com.  No matter if you are house hunting, selling, renting or just researching home values, you can get all of the information you seek on zillow.com. 

Zillow.com has grown tremendously in the past few years.  Much of this can be attributed to the launch of their free iphone app, making it easier than ever to take care of business on the go.  More importantly however, is that this high tech software has access to over 88 million homes, both for sale and not.  This ingenious software has the ability to make your “drive by” house hunting a thing of the past!

So, how does it work?  You simply turn on the Zillow app and not only will your location be displayed (a form of GPS), but it will also display homes currently for sale in the immediate area, homes that have recently sold and perhaps most importantly, homes that may consider selling!  All of this information is laid out with colored icons for easy deciphering.  This application is a real estate investor’s best friend! 

And it gets better. The Zillow app not only tells you where the homes are located, it also gives you access to detailed information, comparable home sales, contact information and photographs.  You can even get the estimated prices and values over time of homes that are not for sale.   Imagine, getting all of this information at the drop of a hat, without even leaving your car or talking with a seller.   And while the application is not perfect and is always being upgraded, one thing is for sure, it makes the job of finding a needle in a haystack much easier.
