Another way real estate agents scam buyers with Zillow

I just read a disturbing story on a real estate agent from Alameda California who intentionally changed sold properties to active so buyers would contact her to see them.

This is a complete violation of REALTOR ethics and Zillow Terms of Service, but the agent didn't seem to see anything wrong with it. Fortunately another agent in the office has made some effort to stop her.

Locally here in Michigan I was just talking to a home buyer Saturday about Zillow and he wanted to know why I said the Zestimates were often more than 20% off. Zillow is fine for generalities. but don't trust it for important decisions!
