I am sorry, I know that you questioned me as to why I have not posted your home for sale on the Zillow.com site. You have made it clear that you want your home to be advertised in every means that I can get my hands on. It is important to you to sell your home so you can continue with your plans. But, if you would give me a few minutes to explain why I have not - or will not post your home or my other listings that I have for sale on the Zillow Site.
I want to sell your home - I can and WILL sell your home but it is hard for me to bring the buyers into your home when I have another agent (Zillow) screaming and picketing infront of us that your beautiful home is worth less, alot less than we are asking as well as the actual "comped" value.
It's not that I don't think that Zillow is a great toy, but to use it as a means to my advertising ? I can not subject you, my seller to the questions that will be raised by potential buyers and please don't get me wrong, I have posted a listing or two on Zillow and I will tell you why. NO ZESTIMATES. But your home is special, you see Zillow is stating that your home is worth $100,000.00 less than what we are asking. Oh, I know - Zillow has a disclaimer that these are only "Zestimates" and that no serious buyers would belive them and yes, I am aware that they have said more than one time that they are not setting "actual sales price" and that their Zestimates are somewhat off. But, don't worry, no one believes them.
Now that you are selling your home and you are in the market to buy something else we are scouring every site for a home that meets your criteria. I know - we have gone to many houses together and the last home that we went to see you found on Zillow, how great... Ohh, the asking price is $90,000 more than the Zestimates? Oh, well ignore that Zestimate price and go in with a full asking price!
