    Grand Rapids Homes that will put Money Back in your Pocket

    It’s true that everyone loves a good deal, especially when buying a home. 

    Good news! Throughout the month there are usually at least a handful of properties with reduced prices.

    LA Times, mentions that in San Francisco, California the median home value is near $1,008,000. With “Zestimates” being inaccurate at a rate of 11.6% this equates to about $117,000. This number alone should crush the expectation that computers are going to provide you with the most accurate answer out there for the valuation of your home.
    According to the LA Times, Zillow’s very own CEO Spencer Rascoff answered that they're "a good starting point" but that nationwide "Zestimates" have a "median error rate" of ...
