How do they get things so wrong and not even realise

As a matter of interest I looked up my property on Zoopla with a view to getting a rough valuation. I have never entered any information regarding this property. Found it listed on Zoopla as having 4bedrooms, 1 reception room and 9 bathrooms. Where did that come from?

Was it the number of bathrooms that was incorrect?

  bumpkin 19:16 17 Sep 2014

Everything was incorrect, am I likely to have 9 bathrooms?, nothing wrong with cleanliness but 2 is more than sufficient for our family. My point was where do they get this ridiculous information from.

I have now amended it to give the correct information but any potential buyer may well have been put off by the ridiculous description given by zoopla.

  Aitchbee 19:54 17 Sep 2014

If you have now amended it to the correct information ... then I would assume that Zoopla have anticipated that action on your part or anybody else on their books!

... 9 and 2 are not even close on the keyboard for it to be a typing error by Zoopla!

BTW - I haven't any interest in Zoopla as you might have gathered.

How much do you want for it?

Aitchbee, I had not entered any information or even registered with Zoopla before spotting my listing by chance.

Misty, buy a ticket then.

How much do you want for it?

Not a fortune just its market value but more than Misty's offer.

Just to explain, had an email from "Martins Money Tips" which is not spam and one of the links there was to Zoopla Hence my knowledge of my listing on the site. Other than that I was unaware.

Zoopla will have gleaned your house's details from your Local Council.

Now may be the time to, quietly check what your Rates Band you are in.

Beware:- If you query your Rates Band and they re-Band you, it will be based on the current value of the house and not the historic one which, because of assorted Governments fear of backlash, has not been redone for a couple of decades!

Is it up for sale for real?

It's the Estate agents that advertise on Zoopla (and RightMove)

Have you checked with Estate Agent that he has got your advert right?
