Real estate sites with mis-information

Things have definitely picked up with the house. My real estate agent thought that activity would pick up with spring and she was right. There is another viewing scheduled for tomorrow evening.

Each time I have a note about someone viewing the house, I always wait to see if there will be an offer. So far, nothing.

I checked the value of my home on a few of the real estate web sites (like Zillow). Their information was incorrect. They said the house was about 1000 square feet, when it’s actually 1692 suqare feet. The house was listed as having three bedrooms; it has two. The third bedroom was split to become a laundry room and a large walk-in closet for the master bedroom. The house’s estimated value on the real estate sites is based upon three bedrooms and ~650 less square feet. Someone who doesn’t know the house might look at the real estate site and seriously think I had lost my mind with what I’m asking for the house.

I keep searching for sites with mis-information and adding the updates that have been done to the house. I don’t know how much of a difference it will make, but there’s not much else I can do…

The good thing was seeing that other houses in my neighborhood have sold for the price range I’m asking — and those houses are considerably smaller.
