As the shared post states, the home valuations of Zillow, Trulia, etc., are often wildly inaccurate, both higher and lower. But you can estimate your home's value yourself on our website, TheOrricoTeamFL.com, by searching your area for homes for sale and homes recently sold. Or we will do it for you if you complete the information at TheOrricoTeamFL.com/WhatsYourHomeWorth. Feel free to use our website. It's all part of our service-oriented philosophy.
Why Zillow Zestimates Fail
Zillow estimates of value are the bane of every real estate agents existence!

Zillow publishes their estimates of value and the general public often times has no idea how inaccurate they are.

In fact, real estate agents are left to constantly explain why online valuation tools are not accurate. On occasion this puts agents in a position of distrust with the public.

People believe what they want to believe. Sometimes they think a real estate agent is just under pricing their home because Zillow says it is worth more.

In the article you will see a detailed explanation of why Zillow estimates of value are so off the mark.

If you have every had trouble explaining to a client why Zillow Zestimates are so off the mark take a look. This should help explain things in the future.

Key Measurements for a Wine Cellar

Find out the best ways to store your stash and how much space you need for wine refrigerators, racks and other storage


“Once … in the wilds of Afghanistan, I lost my corkscrew, and we were forced to live on nothing but food and water for days.” — W.C. Fields, My Little Chickadee (1940)

Whether you live in a tiny New York City apartment or have a mansion with enough space for a wine “cave,” there’s no reason not to preserve this precious resource. Many units are now available for properly stowing your favorite vintages. Even if you don’t drink wine yourself, you may wish to have a bottle properly preserved for guests. In this article we’ll look at self-contained refrigeration units, bottle dimensions and a few ways to store wine.
 
Whether you will be housing your wine in a compact refrigerator or a luxurious wine cellar, it all comes down to the size of a single bottle. While bottle shapes and styles vary slightly, wine and champagne are sold mostly in 750-milliliter bottles. Wine bottles typically measure 3 to 3.2 inches (7.62 to 8.12 centimeters) in diameter and are about 12 inches (30.5 centimeters) tall. Champagne comes in slightly larger containers that measure up to 3.5 inches (8.89 centimeters) in diameter and closer to 12.5 inches (31.75 centimeters) tall in 750-milliliter amounts. 

Consider your personal requirements when planning bottle storage. Creating flexibility is wise, since you can also buy 350-milliliter and 1.5-liter amounts. Those bottle sizes are more difficult to predict. Having slots or shelves for a few odd sizes may take care of this dilemma. One 12-bottle case of wine will take up about 1 cubic foot (0.03 cubic meter) of space in a diamond-bin configuration in which they are stacked next to one another. Nine bottles per cubic foot is a more comfortable margin when planning spaces.

The most important consideration for wine storage is consistent temperature. At about 37 degrees Fahrenheit (2.7 degrees Celsius), refrigerators that we use for our food storage are too cold for the proper preservation of fermented grapes. Wine should be stored at 55 to 58 degrees Fahrenheit (12.7 to 14.4 degrees Celsius) with 60 to 80 percent humidity. These conditions are ideal, but going outside of these parameters by up to 5 percent should not harm anything.

A 12-inch (30.5-centimeter) wide fridge can stand alone or be placed under a standard 36-inch-high (92-centimeter-high) countertop. Manufactured units typically are a little less than 24 inches (61 centimeters) deep to fit within standard cabinetry. 

This example will hold up to 19 bottles. You can find units with widths up to 24 inches (61 centimeters) in 3-inch (7.62-centimeter) increments. The Titan unit below is 15 inches (38 centimeters) wide and will hold up to 23 standard Burgundy bottles. Consider that one case of wine is 12 bottles. For those who collect cases at a time, as opposed to a bottle here and there, we’ll look at more generous storage solutions below.

Most wine on the market today should be consumed within a few years of being bottled. Long-term storage for maturing wines is a topic beyond the scope of this story. Wine connoisseurs follow more sophisticated serving temperature requirements for types of wine, as follows:
Sparkling wines and champagne: 40 to 47 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4 to 8.3 degrees Celsius)
Rosés and whites: 46 to 56 degrees Fahrenheit (7.7 to 13.3 degrees Celsius)
Lighter reds: 54 to 58 degrees Fahrenheit (12.2 to 14.4 degrees Celsius)
Full-bodied reds: 58 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit (14.4 to 18.3 degrees Celsius)
Another consideration is whether to store bottles horizontally or upright. Usually it’s only storing wine upright in extreme climates or for long periods of time that will give you problems. Corks have to dry out, crack or contract to disturb the wine, and other capping methods are becoming more common. That being said, storing wine bottles horizontally works best spatially. But if you need to place a case upright in the cabinet for a few weeks, it should be fine.

Though some live in places where wine can be kept at the proper temperature in a dark basement or another sheltered space, most need refrigeration or a mechanical system for cooling. 

Another caution for wine storage is light. Wine is normally bottled in colored glass to inhibit light exposure. Sunlight and some artificial light can degrade wine over time and hasten unwanted aging. Consider glass-enclosed storage systems that block exposure to light and UV rays. If you drink the wine within a reasonable time — say, a few months — it should not make much difference.
 
Starting at 24 inches in width, undercounter units are built in 6-inch increments to be 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48 inches (61 to 122 centimeters) wide. Consider that you can place pairs of the same or different sizes to provide for your specific needs. For example, you could have two smaller wine refrigerators; one could hold your favorite Bordeaux at exactly 57 degrees Fahrenheit (13.8 degrees Celsius) and the other could house your delicate chardonnays at a perfect 51 degrees Fahrenheit (10.5 degrees Celsius).

In this example, two 24-inch-wide (61-centimeter-wide) undercounter units are paired. Some people have older trash compactors that are often 18 inches (46 centimeters) wide and that they no longer use or want. These can easily be removed and an 18-inch-wide (46-centimeter-wide) wine refrigerator can be installed in that same place.
 
This pair of tall units is finished with cabinet-coordinating doors neatly and is beautifully integrated into the built-ins of this Chicago apartment. Consider having finishes coordinate with your decor when you shop for units, or have your architect specify them to your preference. Custom features like this must be carefully planned and coordinated with installation, with the dimensional parameters always considered.

The weight of your wine collection also should be considered. Each bottle of wine weighs about 3 pounds. If you amass a collection of 1,000 bottles, you are placing an additional ton and a half in your house. That’s equivalent to a small car. This is another reason wine cellars usually end up in the lowest levels of the house. Your basement probably would have no problem taking on the weight.

One British company, Spiral Cellars, has created an extraordinary wine cellar designed to sit within the foundation of a house. Its cylindrical design has an automated hatch opening and spiral stairs to access built-in wine racks holding an astonishing 1,360 bottles of wine in a compact arrangement. No power is needed to refrigerate the unit; a passive ventilation system maintains the wine at the proper temperature. Of course, this will only be appropriate in climates like that of the U.K. or someplace similar. The cellar measures 7.4 feet (2.2 meters) deep and 3.3 feet (1 meter) in diameter.
