  • So the first new bubble in housing is the valuation websites! As an active realtor in AZ I can assure you that Zillow's valuations have absolutely no connection to what's really happening in the market place. Their "Zesimates" are often wildly inaccurate on both sides of professional appraisals, yet Zillow is often cited as the fount of all real-estate wisdom in the media. Ride this pony however you like, just know that their work is pure fiction.
