7. Zillo.com - Zillo is a developing site and sometimes instead of finding the site you will be told "zillo.com is currently parked". Try these Harbour, Yacht, Center and Plantation links. The zillo website (beta version) allows residents of Duck Key and the rest of the United States to calculate the values of their homes. Reviewers have found the values generated as relatively accurate, but in the instance of Duck Key Zillo's values ( called Zestimates) for the most part are way off the mark. A home listed for $4.3 million at 292 East Seaview Drive on Yacht Club shows a Zillo value of only $2.16 million. A house on West Seaview Cirlce with an asking price of $3.5 million shows a Zillo value of a bit more than $2 million. A house that recently sold for $1,450,000 only shows a Zillo value of 1.3 million.

Use these Zillo Links to Harbour, Yacht, Center and Plantation Islands to check home prices. Move cursor on slidebar between street and home to zoom in. Click cursor on Compass to move over island image in east and west,and north and southdirections to see parts not shown.

The Beta version of Zillo is http://zillo.com. If you happen to use http://www.zillo.com, a message will say the website is parked. That's because only the beta (test version) is available currently.
