Zillow is an industry leader in the housing market. People look to them for information on home values and estimates of what their home could be worth. But should you trust Zillow? There are many opinions about this, and we will talk about some things that make it difficult to trust Zillow with the true value of your {Business Area} house.

Zillow does not take into account the actually housing market in your specific area. It uses and therefore provides data that is broad, and doesn’t offer as much context for {Business Area} homes as most would like. The value of a home on Zillow can be affected by many variables such as location, condition of the house and it’s size, and the accuracy of these “zestimates” will vary to some degree from the actual value of the home, as well as other factors depending on where you live in {Business Area}. Additionally, neighborhoods that are often more expensive than other areas because they have better schools or proximity to certain things like parks or shopping centers

Fact: Zillow has been reported to average anywhere from 18 to 20 percent higher or lower in home estimates.

The point is that Zillow does provide a good “ballpark” estimate for most houses. However, if you want to find out the real value of your home in {Business Area}, you could contact a real estate agent or appraiser. Or you can call us at (480) 582-5050 and we will provide real world value of what it is worth on the open market.

When we determine what your property is worth, in order to make an offer, we look at the same date as an agent or appraiser. However, because we are a cash buyer, purchasing as-is, without any fees or closing costs, we will likely offer a little less, however we are able to offer you a fair price for your property.

    We had made a move out west from North Carolina for business reasons, and we did not have time to finish some upgrades such as new carpet, fixing a small area of mold in one of the bathrooms, and some painting.  We had selected an investor in NC who advertised quick closings, all cash for as-is homes.  They backed out of the deal at the last minute, and we had a home under construction in Utah.

    We called We Buy Homes for Cash, and they were wonderful.  Blake, Mason and Bryan made the whole process smooth and stress free.  We were able to close in about two weeks.

    We are about to close on our new home in Utah.  This would not have been possible without their professional and personable service.  I highly recommend We Buy Homes for Cash.

    I had been wanting to sell my house for several months but every realtor I talked to needed me to clean up my house and I have 30 years worth of stuff here.  I was not able to get rid of my stuff or pack it all away.  My home also needed some repairs like the roof and some plumbing stuff.  I called We Buy Homes Cash and the experience was amazing.  They gave me $2,000 up front so I could buy the moving supplies I needed to pack.  Then they let me stay in the house for 2 weeks after they closed.  This was so helpful.  Thank you so much Tyson and all the others that helped me make my move to Ohio possible.

    If you're looking to sell your home, I can't think of a more reputable and fair team to work with.  Tyson and his team went above and beyond to make sure they understood the process of working with a cash buyer went.  The process was very smooth and painless and I am sincerely thankful for their services.
