The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Zillow Digs - A Picture Perfect New Feature

What's in a picture?  Everything... almost.  People say that a photo or picture tells a thousand stories, but does it give you the estimate or potential costs?  Well it does now.

We are now tackling home improvement with yesterday’s launch of Zillow Digs, where home shoppers and homeowners can find visual inspiration and understand the real cost of remodeling projects – free on iPad and the Web. 

One of the unique features Zillow provides is that users can see Zillow’s proprietary Digs Estimate™ for the estimated cost of thousands of actual bathrooms and kitchens they are viewing, based on where they live.

A recent Ipsos study found that more than 75 percent of homeowners who bought a home in the past year completed a home improvement project. Nearly 25 percent of recent homeowners remodeled a bathroom or kitchen in the past year.

I've already created some Favorites that I don't mind sharing here.  You can see some examples of my favorite home features and the home improvement ideas I'm contemplating and drooling over...  lol~

Check out the video demo of Zillow Digs below and you'll see why we're so excited about this new product.

The Zillow Digs App is available for free:

·         On iPad:

·         On the Web:

Pop on over and check it out. While you're there, share your favorite home's features and the improvements that you "Dig" with others. You can build and connect with your following, and also follow those who are sharing their ideas and inspirations that are similar to yours.

I think you're going to "Dig" this new feature and tool on Zillow.
