Overall extremely helpful! Would prefer a direct link to Google Earth or at least easier satellite and 'street view' viewing. Really enjoy and use the mortgage calculator, school info and the zestimate map is awesome. Would like crime info overlay. Also, frequently updated (weekly?) professional insights regarding market trends within the specific neighborhoods of interest and an option for other agents to agree/disagree and make their observations and add input. Kind of like a 'blog on the side' that would have maybe a 10 day cycle and then get archived, so the comments immediately viewable would be current. Maybe you would have to create incentives for better agents to get involved?
If some of the articles could provide a longer summary of the property and house that would be great. Sometimes it's kind of slow to load but generally loads at decent rate. Sometimes the map part wigs out and won't bring up the same houses you were just looking at...instead shows fewer. Other than that...it's a great app I love it!!! :)
Zillow is easy to use and usually up to date, sometimes it helps us find what we are looking for faster than our realtor! Unfortunately there are a few scams floating about, or old listings that are not longer valid. Overall it's still one of my favorite tools to research real estate.
My only complaint is that houses that I have already looked at show up as "unviewed" if I scroll away momentarily or log back in after closing the app. This can be frustrating because it makes houses look like new listings on the map even though I may have viewed them several times already. Only happens on mobile app - the website doesn't show the same issue.
The app is constantly missing homes that sold recently in a selected area, shows homes sold for unreasonable or unrealistic prices, etc. Needs an update. This app used to be much better than other real estate apps but has been severely lacking lately. Home sold almost directly behind me and never showed that it was sale was pending until I zoomed in on the map location and clicked on the home location which it then showed it was pending. Even after it sold, it still never showed when selecting homes that recently sold in the area.
2 years ago I used this app and it was great and up to date. Found a apartment right away called and got setup almost immediately This time around not so good. Have called realators the day it is posted on zillow, and it is already off the market. Have left numerous voicemails no call backs! I dont know if it is even the correct phone number's listed. Too bad because I really enjoyed this 2 years ago. So 2 stars.
