Sites that publish a number that the CONSUMER believes to be, and is labeled an estimate should be expected to have some basis in fact. As "Chicago' noted, the number he observed regarding his home is so incorrect that labeling it a SCAM is not unreasonable. People DO look at these numbers and DO make decisions. Calling these deceived citizens idiots may not be the most productive solution.
"Chicago" should take this opportunity to advise family, friends, co-workers, postal worker, city employees, and strangers on the street that aggregate real estate websites have a 'blank check' in regards to the data they exhibit and should be used for entertainment purposes ONLY.
Truila is perceived to be a real estate website. If you or I, were to publish such grossly false information, we would be in front of a panel of peers fighting to keep our license.
Chicago's anger is proper and should be channeled in the right direction.
Chicago, please understand, real estate professional are not responsible for the data appearing on this site. NOT EVEN THE HOMES THAT ARE SUGGESTED TO BE FOR SALE! The practice of deceiving the public with fabricated information is a SCAM! Go spread the word of your new revelation. Friends won't let their friends fall into this trap.
Best of success to you.
