Zoocasa et al

February 11th, 2012
Some clients have been asking me about websites such as Zoocasa and how reliable the information on them is.
The answer is that while there may be some useful information, Zoocasa is a site that is more for fun than for reliable information about the real estate market and in particular pricing.
