Zoopla Sudden Drop In Valuation

Recommended Posts

I have raised a question in an earlier thread about Zoopla's methodology in its valuations (http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=157712).

Anyway, I have been tracking a certain house valuation for just over 3 weeks, just to see how the price is moving. To my surprise :o , this happened this morning:

So my question is, after following a rough trendline for three weeks, why the sudden plunge...? And I mean PLUNGE... Does this represent a tweak in their valuations algorithm? Or something more sinister? (I hope the latter)

Anyone else tracking the price of anywhere via Zoopla? Any thoughts?

You cannot take these on line valuation tools seriously. They are often flawed by various statistical anomolies. Just do your own research. Prices are manipulated in all markets. What you actually pay is all that counts.

Plunge? Really? Those of us who bothered to read the y axis wouldn't call it that.

A MASSIVE drop of £1500 on a £250,000 house. :lol:

Okay, so my use of plunge is nuanced by not very big drops over the preceding 3 weeks.

But actually 0.6% in a day is an 88.9% drop in a year... :P

Okay, so the previous £1,000-odd drop pales into insignificance against the almost £10,000 drop. That is getting to be significant (5% drop in a month)

Burn, baby, burn! B)

I got my zoopla update today so they obviously have used the new land reg data to adjust the area you are looking at down quite considerably!

The area I'm monitoring is -0.6% yoy -6.2% 6m and -1.8% 3m

I'm quite happy with that.

Zoopla raises the spirits for me. I am tracking a number of porperties and take delight at the red arrows which show BIG drops starting around November of last year. Way I see it, those redfuctions have not moved any of them so they will probably drop another 10% next month as supply is increasing around here and jobs are going in local government and then by another 10% in the run up to summer following a failed Spring bounce and the fact that some of these have been on a year without any offers :

They have just added alot of data, my purchase in September has just been added, I was wondering why it took them so long as I thought they added the land reg data monthly, looks like its every 6 months...
