How accurate is the Zillow estimate on your Charlotte home?

March 1st, 2021

To find out the value of their home, most people go to Zillow, type in their address, and check their Zestimate. But is that number for your Charlotte home accurate?

In most cases, according to Zillow, the Zestimate will fall within 10% of the real value of the home (a home with a $250,000 Zestimate, then, could actually be worth $225,000 or $275,000).

However, Investopedia points out that, "Zestimates are only as accurate as the data behind them, so if the number of bedrooms or bathrooms in a home, its square footage, or its lot size are inaccurate on Zillow, the Zestimate will be off."

So while Zillow is a good starting place, it's not an end-all answer.

Be sure to also consider...


If the home is in disrepair, that's going to lower its value. You might consider paying a professional home inspector to look at your home and give you a thorough rundown of what problems exist and how serious they are. This will give you a better idea of what you're up against and maybe an idea on how to address the problem.


If the home needs a lot of updates to make it more modern, that's going to lower its value. A fresh coat of paint on the inside and outside, spruced up front yard and new flooring especially if your carpets and tiles are outdated are sure to add value to your Charlotte property.


If the home is dirty and cluttered, buyers won't be willing to pay as much for the home.


If the home isn't in the ideal area or price-point for buyers in your area, then it'll take longer to sell and might sell for less.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Finding a place you can call home can be a very lengthy and tiring process. For me, this was an important milestone in my life and I needed someone who not only understood my goal but also has the knowledge, experience and patience to help me reach this goal. Bright was very involved in the entire process; scheduling property visits, working with the financial institution, lawyer’s office, property inspectors, all the way to negotiating the property price down, etc. Having Bright on my side as a buyer made the process smooth and enjoyable for me, and I’d strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
