Social media has had a major impact on the home buying and selling process over the last few years.

Back in the day, we didn’t have Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram. You walked into the grocery store, bumped into someone you knew, and exchanged small talk. Somewhere in that conversation, you mentioned that you are thinking of buying or selling your home.

Social media has taken that grocery store to a whole other level. Now, you can tell millions of people about your real estate goals.

What is a Zillow Zestimate? It is an algorithm that Zillow uses to give you a ballpark idea of your home’s value.
