This is very cool...


  • Wow this is pretty cool.
    I live in Houston and what would be the most intriguing feature for the future would be to locate the most valuable home in the city. So far I found 10.5 million!

  • It would be cool if their numbers reflected reality, but in my northern New Jersey neighborhood, it's ridiculously inaccurate. They are showing house values at approximately 10% of real values. A house that would easily fetch half a million is listed at $42K on zillow.

  • No kidding! My house is valued at $30,000 below the house across the street, a house I once lived in as a rental. My house is bigger, my lot is bigger, and my house is 20 years newer. The only comparable they list anywhere near my neighborhood is a condo, which has no land. I have over 1/4 acre. I am pretty sure they have undervalued my house by at least $150,000.

  • Dead-on here in the west suburbs of Chicago. I bought my place because it was undervalued for the area, and predicted about $20K for every 6 months for about the next 18 months.

    6 months into it, and it's at +$23K. Not too shabby for some tech guy playing with Calc... :-)

    Nice to have the confirmation on my estimates - Zillow just made it onto my blog's Hall of Fame list!

    Hey, what's up. I was checking out the 'Official Google Blog', and wanted to ask you (and some of your fellow Google bloggers) a quick question about working for Google.

    I feel like I'm lucky enough to know what I want to do (see link below), but can't find an employer/environment that fits. Every company is different on the inside than what they advertise, so I wanted to ask you as 'someone on the inside' if Google might fit.

    I've tried to summarize what I enjoy/am fulfilled doing:

    I can't really put a traditional job title on that, which is why I'm looking for a non-traditional company that seems like it might be just what I'm looking for.

    As someone on the inside of Google, do you think it is the environment I'm describing? At this point, I'd do just about anything (move across the country, go to grad school, etc.) to be a part of a team that had goals similar to the ones I've listed on that page, because it's something I believe in, and what I seem to excel at.

    Thanks for your time. Right now, I'm just trying to get the opinions of a few people at Google, and I appreciate any feedback you might have.

    My name is Luz María Zañartu and I am journalist of El Mercurio, in Santiago, Chile, the leading one in the country. The reason why I am writing you is because I am preparing an articule about the new technologies companies are implementing aimed to facilitate women at work.

In case you agree I can send you some questions by e mail (it is Or if you speak spanish I can call you by phone. I will be waiting for you sooner answer I have to finish the article tomorrow).
