Real Living HER Loves Z? Loves Z Not?

daisy Real Living loves Z loves Z not Columbus real estate expert Harley Rouda Jr. of Real Living HER  talked about Zillow... on Channel 4 News, the local NBC channel 6:00 broadcast tonight.

Z is  for Zillow. I never watch the 6:00 News but an email that Harley Rouda Jr. was going to talk about Zillow and Cyberhomes on NBC4  6:00 news got me sitting down in front of the tube.  

I wondered why he was talking about Zillow and Cyberhomes... 

Duh? Record traffic in July 2009.  I don't think there was any mention of Cyberhomes.  The Cyberhomes site estimates value of homes too.  Not sure if Cyberhomes had record traffic in July too.

Zillow 2009 Traffic Stats

Zillow's "Zestimates" estimates of value are the main attraction on their site.  Zillows been around for a few years now.   Spencer Rascoff of Zillow has the top slot on the ActiveRain dashboard  talking about traffic on their site "Zillow July 2009 Traffic Stats"

Zillows overall traffic is up, Rascoff wrote: "Zillow recorded 8.7 million unique visitors in July, 64% more visitors than July 2008."

and "Much more important than our overall traffic and its growth is how big Zillow is in your particular area. So again, I'm pleased to show you here exactly what our traffic is in every city in the country, and its accompanying growth rate."

Year over year Zillows traffic in Columbus was up 112% if I am reading the Zillow report correctly.

So what did Harley Rouda Jr. the CEO of Real Living have to say about Columbus people using Zillow to know the value of their property?  To paraphrase I believe he said that Zillow may not reliable for homes in Upper Arlington, Clintonville, Bexley... older areas of Central Ohio.  That if the houses were all the same an automated method of valuing property would be reliable.

Rouda did NOT mention Worthington, but Worthington is old....

Drat he did not use the word Unzillowable.

Columbus ranks for rich single men  Zillow says so
