Can You Sell Your Home On Zillow?
Yes, you sure can sell your home on Zillow. But the real question is why would you? I would highly recommend not listing your home only on Zillow. Having a professional on your side is a very important piece to the puzzle. Nearly 90% of active homebuyers are working with an agent, so why leave them out? The question you should really be asking yourself is if the increased exposure on listing with an agent will outweigh the percentage of commission charged.
If you decide to sell your home on Zillow you'll be contacted daily with emails, calls, texts, and scheduling showings. Buyers will want to see your home daily that you need to coordinate. If real estate isn't your full-time career this can be difficult. I've worked a couple for sale by owners and they were so busy with there job and family they didn't have time to get back to those emails and texts and ultimately losing multiple buyers and the opportunity to go under contract, my buyers went with a home that was listed with another Realtor. They trusted the process a lot more.
If you use only Zillow to list your home the Zestimate is not always correct. Zillow collects info within your area but sometimes they use the same listing twice that skew your numbers or they might compare your home to a piece of land that is way less in price. Working with a Realtor will get you the correct number.
