API Comp results are different than zillow comps on website.

I am currently playing around with the zillow API and the comps api is giving results VERY different than the zillow web site.  Is that a bug, or why are these different?

Zillow site:
http://www.zillow.com/homes/comps/8285234_zpid/

API Call:
http://www.zillow.com/webservice/GetComps.htm?zws-id=X1-ZWz1cgpiuatouj_aqadi&zpid=8285234&count=25

my email is jeff.plummer@jnyinvestments.com

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff is right.

In addition to that some of the results from the API doesn't even exists in the web site result, how can you explain that?

I can understand that the web site result will contain more data, but why it's not contains API result?

Thanks,

Itay.

Maximum number of comps we return in API limited to 25. On the web you might be seeing the subset of API result set.
