In the left-hand column, last item is "On Zillow" - below that you can click on "More Facts" - for Foundation Type, it says "Concrete Block" but it should be "Poured Concrete." In that same section under "Roof Type," it says "Shake/Single" and it should be "Shake/Shingle."

Also, you didn't address our concern about the Zestimate falling $136,000 in 3 months. Is there something that can be done to "fix" that?

Thanks.

More corrections:  Under "more facts," the Foundation Type should be "Poured Concrete" and "Roof Type" should be "Shake/Shingle." I could not find where to make the corrections for these two items.
Regarding the Zestimate, there is no past sale history since we built our house on the lot we purchased. According to the Zestimate, the value went from $384,000 in Dec 2011 to $248,000 in March 2012. Obviously something is wrong here.
Thanks for your help.

Hmm... not sure..it worked for me. Just made the changes. When you choose the edits, you need to click on "electric" (for example), then the OK box, then click the box the bottom of the page in the box next to the "I promise that..." and then click on "Save Changes."

Regarding your zestimate, these types of home features aren't calculated in the zestimate. The data for your home that is used, is past sale history, size of the home, bed/bath count and lot size.

We are not able to edit the list on the right side of the "Home Facts" area:
Electric: Propane, Other (in-floor heat)
View: Water
Roof: Shake/Shingle
Parking Type: Garage-attached
Exterior: Vinyl
Heating Type: Forced Air, Other (in-floor)
Appliances: dishwasher, dryer, range/over, refrigerator, washer
Floor Cover: Carpet, laminate, linoleum/vinyl
Rooms: Dining room, family room, laundry room, master bath, mud room, office, walk-in closet, workshop

When the above edits are added, the changes are not saved. We are concerned about the drop in zestimate. Would that change once the above changes are added?

Thanks!

I would be more concerned about the massive drop in zestimate from $384k in June last year to $249k now. It really will make your listing price difficult for a buyer to understand as $100k difference is so material. The zestimate is obviously wrong and zillow should be fixing that instead. The heating details all look as if they are processed on the 'more facts' link so I would stop worrying about that and work on the zestimate problem.

Hi,
what type of edits are you not seeing? I see that the home has central cooling, wall heat, and no fireplace. Can you let us know what should be showing? Thank you for posting.
