everyone knows zillow is not accurate. It is a good place to get sale prices, but that is about it.

Yeah -- Zillow is so accurate it shows my address as my neighbors house. Anyone that relies only on Zillow is foolish when assessing their property value.

When homes aren't selling there is no way to get an accurate value.

If FREE ADS R US can't answer a simple question like "when, where, and what time is the meeting" then this MUST BE A SCAM. I wouldn't waste my time with someone or something that can't provide a straight forward answer to a simple question. They probably get paid for each hit to the website they've directed you to. If I wanted to know the value of my home and what is going on in the neighborhood, I'd call one of the hard working real estate agents that has the most signs posted in my neighborhood.

It looks like Free was making a sarcastic comment about the use of this discussion board for advertising a business. The web link goes to a business and the "town hall" is a marketing device for gathering contact information and prospects. Ken is right that you could get this information from any local realtor. The most accurate assessment of your home's value will come from a competent real estate appraiser...for a fee.

Anyone who attended the last forum got a real earful on market conditions. The parties that are putting it on, have no dog in the fight and are there, not to sell anything, but to help people understand the real estate and mortgage market today.

This is a very confusing time even for the professionals. Help yourself by attending and getting up to speed on the market - remember real estate is local. You cannot find anything accurate from national news on this subject.

I congratulate all of the presenters and the sponsors for doing this.

Greetings.

The 2nd Annual Pleasanton Real Estate Town Hall is being organized and promoted by the City of Pleasanton, The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerece, the Pleasanton Weekly and the Bay East Association of REALTORS. It will be held on Wednesday, May 27 from 7:00 to 8:30pm at the Vet's Hall downtown.

The event is designed to provide specific and objective information about the Pleasanton real estate market, issues related to home purchase financing and resources about affordable housing and the homebuying process that are avaialble to local residents. The event is NOT a home-buyers fair nor is it intended to be "farming" opportunity. It IS a chance to have your questions about real estate answered in an open and objective environment. The panelists include leaders from the REALTOR, lending and consumer advocacy professions.

This group organized last year's event to answer questions about what's happening in residential real estate specficially here in Pleasanton. It attracted more than 120 participants and the feedback was very positive. Given current economic issues at the national and state level we're confident that many Pleasanton residents are curious about how things like the federal stimulus packages and new regulations related to appraisals may impact us here at home.

I'll be moderating the panel discussion and I'm looking forward to not only what they will be sharing with us, but the questions from the audience, too. Pleasnton residents are so engaged in every aspect of their community that I hope they see this event as a chance to learn more about what's happening locally and to educate the panelists, too.

I'd be happy to answer any of your questions about this event using the PW forum.

See you on Wednesday, May 27 at the Vet's Hall.

- David Stark, Public Affairs Director for the Bay East Association of REALTORS and celebrating my 10th year as a Pleasanton resident

Thanks. Why was it so difficult to just put that in the first posting to this string of comments? I've always believed is better to be direct rather than obtuse.
