Zillow Zestimates: A trustworthy source for St. Louis homebuyers and sellers?

Zillow Zestimates: A trustworthy source for St. Louis homebuyers and sellers?

St. Louis REALTORS® is launching a campaign strongly urging the public NOT to trust online real estate estimate websites, like Zillow and Trulia. Click here to view a news release detailing our position with documented proof of flagrant inaccuracies regarding online estimates. In addition, we emphasize why the public can trust a St. Louis REALTOR® member to provide accurate data, based on facts, not fiction.

Is it important to be accurate and have the right data when you are buying or selling a house? The answer: An unequivocal, “Yes.” But, if you are Zillow pushing consumers to view your online offerings, the answer is a “Zestimate” or a “guesstimate” is acceptable. St. Louis REALTORS® don’t think so, and you shouldn’t either.

We encourage you to share the information below with your sphere of influence.

Contracts & Forms Revisions and Updates

Contracts & Forms Revisions and Updates

Form revisions as of July 1, 2016

  • #2049-Disclosure of Information Lead Based Paint/Lead Based Paint Hazards
    • Line numbers were added
    • HUD verbiage added to lines 33-35.
  • #2085-Electronic Lock Box Authorization
    • Title changed to Tenant Lock Box Authorization
    • Names of Association Boards of REALTORS®  removed from line 5
  • #2119-Pre-1978 Housing Rental and Leases Disclosure of Information Lead Based Paint and/or Lead Based Paint Hazards
    • HUD verbiage added to lines 27-29
  • #2141a-Condominium Resale Certificate
    • Verbiage added to lines 34 & 39

Reasons for Form Revisions

  • Line numbers were added for consistency with other forms
  • Names of Association/Boards removed due to increasing membership of Mid America Regional Information Systems (MARIS); the forms will always be up to date by not specifying certain counties.
  • Forms 2049 & 2119 – HUD instructions state: Whenever a seller or lessor has entered into a contract with an agent for the purpose of selling or leasing a unit of target housing, the regulations promulgated under this section shall require the agent, on behalf of the seller or lessor, to ensure with the requirements of this section. The forms were revised to add HUD verbiage so forms are more clear and concise.

New Forms Added & Purpose

  • Mechanic Lien Waiver – this form should be provided to the following:
    • The seller, at the time of listing, for completion by any contractors, subcontractors or suppliers who have recently performed work on the subject property.
    • To any vendors (including their subcontractors and/or suppliers) hired to complete necessary repairs on the subject property (i.e. during inspection negotiations).
    • To your preferred vendors (including their subcontractors and/or suppliers) who commonly handle repairs for your clients.
  • Notice of Intended Sale (NOIS) – if the subject property is newly constructed or rehabbed, then the underwriter will typically require this form. It is completed by the owner of the property and recorded in the county where the property is located. The intent is to provide notice that the owner is renovating the property for sale to a bona fide purchaser. It also reflects the closing date of the property.

For any questions regarding the current revisions and updates, please contact Tracey Yost, Contracts & Forms Liaison, at tyost@stlrealtors.com
