One of the most popular websites in real estate is undoubtedly Zillow. But did you know that their home value “Zestimates” are often WAY off?

In fact, the CEO of Zillow just sold his own home in Seattle for 40% LESS than the Zestimate!

Per Inman News, “On February 29th, Spencer Rascoff sold a Seattle home for $1.05 million, 40 percent less than the Zestimate of $1.75 million shown on its property page a day later.”

Zillow actually has a disclaimer on their website where you can see exactly how INACCURATE they are. They just make it hard to find.

As a real estate agent I actually have access to a tool that can accurately show someone how much their home is worth. I normally only use it when someone is selling their home soon, but after seeing how inaccurate Zillow is I am now offering to provide this service to ANYONE who is curious.

If you contact me using the form on this page by adding your home’s address (or the address of a home you are curious about the value of), I would be happy to send you a “BobsHomes Estimate” today 🙂

4 Decorating TIP TOP TIPS

Bob Idakaar Realtor’s Perspective~

Here are my 4 tip top tips for decorating a room:

  1. Choose your flooring first!
  2. Choose your paint last! (Yes, this is one of the common mistakes and comes as a surprise to many)
  3. Define your style and “goal” or mood for the room. What is the feeling you want to evoke?
  4. Find a focal point (or an anchor)

In my opinion, things usually work out best when you plan ahead and design the whole room. It’s ideal if you plan the whole room before you start working on it with out a plan!

1. Start with the floors

From the Bottom up… the floors are the foundation, and they set the tone for the entire room.

In general, I think it’s best to have the same type (and color) on all of the floors, at least all main rooms on the main floor (bathrooms/powder rooms are different). When you have the same flooring in all areas, it makes your space look larger and more cohesive. It also makes your space look cleaner and less cluttered.

The flooring is the base, and everything is built on top of it…literally and figuratively. And, if you choose your floors well, they will be there for years to come and should outlast any paint and decor changes you make to the room throughout your time in your home.

2. Pick the paint color last!

Everything goes smoother if you pick the paint color LAST.

If you choose the paint color first, it will make every other decision TOUGHER. It will be harder to find the find the right floor color, carpet/area rug, window treatments, pillows, bedding and other accessories.

Color can be placed in an area rug, window treatments, pillows, furniture,  wall paintings and accessories. And, of course, you also have the option of an accent color wall.

3. What’s your style?

What do you want the style and the mood of the room to be? Do you want a more modern look, or traditional or perhaps a cozy farmhouse style? There is no right or wrong answer…it’s whatever you like.

4. Make a focal point

Choose piece that you want to be the focal point for the room. It sets the tone and your style. This may differ by room. It could be a painting (or picture), or an area rug, or some pillows, or a coffee table or special item for your coffee table. This piece is your inspiration and it is your “must have” item. Make sure everything in the room goes with this piece and complements it.
