US real estate website zillow.com is now providing its “Zestimate” home valuations to personal finance software company mint.com.
“Because a home is usually a person’s largest asset, it makes perfect sense for us to integrate with zillow.com, to help our users track their home’s Zestimate in their mint.com account,” says Aaron Patzer, mint.com’s founder.
While Zestimates are sometimes a source of debate, zillow.com says they are “updated regularly for continued accuracy,” and factor in data such as comparable sales and facts about a home including number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, lot size and remodels.
“zillow.com and mint.com have a common goal – to empower consumers with information so they can make more informed decisions regarding two very important areas of their lives – their home and finances,” said Spencer Rascoff, zillow.com’s newly-appointed CEO.
zillow.com says mint.com users who have already added their home to their account will see their home’s estimated value the next time they log in.
