This video will help you understand the accuracy of the Zillow Zestimate. In Big Bear Zillow’s Zestimates are often mislead by the different types of properties available. Zillow doesn’t know that your home is situated with a view of the ski slopes or lake. Zillow doesn’t know if your home sits on Big Bear Lake and has a boat dock. Zillow often uses comparables from Sugarloaf as comps. for homes in Moonridge since they are only a mile or two apart as a crow flies.

When we look at the statistics for Zillow accuracy for San Bernardino County we see:
2 out of 5 Stars for Zestimate Accuracy
99% of the homes are on Zillow
99% of the Homes have Zestimates
23% of the Zestimates are within 5% / or 77% are not.
43% of the Zestimates are within 10% / or 57% are not.
69% of the Zestimates are within 20% / or 31% are not.
12.1% Median Error

I believe that Zillow’s accuracy will improve as they compile more information. Currently market conditions are changing so fast that your home value is a moving target. It’s more important than ever to price your property correctly to create excitement in this volatile market.
