I realize I have written a lot about the Towson Zestimates and how much they have been off in my area. It is not that I mean to harp, but as most of my family & friends know, I am an expert when it comes to house values in Towson. Enter this weekend, with cookouts and family time galore. As usual, the discussion goes to real estate. "I was passing this on the way to your house - how much is it on for?" Of course, I am ready with that information: "$2,495,000." "How about the small one near Charles Street?" "$615,000." (I know my area!) "So, Marney, what is this Zillow Zestimates thing you have blogged about?" Well, here's the PERFECT example as to the difference between TRUE VALUE and ZESTIMATES. List price: $2,495,000. Zestimate: $971,000. Off by over $1.5 MILLION!!!! List price: $615,...

Even though it is not my listing, I can't help but be happy that this house sold. For almost a year I have driven past its sign at least once a day, and was so excited to see the Under Contract sign yesterday morning. What made it sell finally? Price, I am sure! This was a cute cape cod, single family home with a great addition off the back, and fantastic curb appeal, this home was for sale much longer than expected. Yes, it has its drawbacks, namely the busy road, but it is also very conveniently located in close walking distance to a blue ribbon school with tennis courts, playgrounds and lots of open park-like space. So why was this house on the market for 248 days? You can't change location. Its' condition is wonderful. The only thing you can change in price. They began up near $500,...
