Publisher Description

How do you spot an area poised for gentrification? Is spring or winter the best time to put your house on the market? Will a house on Swamp Road sell for less than one on Gingerbread Lane? The fact is that the rules of real estate have changed drastically over the past five years. To understand real estate in our fast-paced, technology-driven world, we need to toss out all of the outdated truisms and embrace today's brand new information. But how?

Enter Zillow, the nation's #1 real estate website and mobile app. Thanks to its treasure trove of proprietary data and army of statisticians and data scientists, led by chief economist Stan Humphries, Zillow has been able to spot the trends and truths of today's housing market while acknowledging that a home is more than an economic asset. In Zillow Talk, Humphries and CEO Spencer Rascoff explain the science behind where and how we live now and reveal practical, data-driven insights about buying, selling, renting and financing real estate. Read this book to find out why:

It's better to remodel your bathroom than your kitchen
Putting the word "cute" in your listing could cost you thousands of dollars
You shouldn't buy the worst house in the best neighborhood
You should never list your house for $444,000
You shouldn't list your house for sale before March Madness or after the Masters

Densely packed with entertaining anecdotes and invaluable how-to advice, Zillow Talk is poised to be the real estate almanac for the next generation.

Looking for hours of useless stats? This audiobook is for you!

This audiobook has about ten minutes worth of mildly entertaining information. The other 6 hours are filled by the creators of zillow geeking out over stats that aren't going to help you buy or sell your house or get that realtor license you've always dreamed about.

The pacing of the narration is also far too slow and monotonous to retain the listener's attention for any period of time. I had to listen to this audiobook at 2x speed to get through it.

Save your 20 bucks and put it towards a down payment on a house.
