Does Zillow every adjust its estimates to appraised value?

We recently refinanced and the appraisal came back many tens of thousand higher than Zillow's estimate.  We think the appraisal is just about right.  Zillow is low because, I think, Zillow uses the state's tax assessment as part of its formula.  Our assessment is very low when compared to other similar homes in the area due in part to our successful appeal last year of the assessment.

How would we go about getting Zillow to correct what we think is an error on their part and adjust the value to our recent appraisal?

Zillow does not really have a mechanism to accept appraisals, but a low assessment can influence your Zestimate. I know that first hand because it affected mine when I appealed too.

There is really no way to increase the Zestimate outright, but making sure that your home facts are right can help give Zillow more numbers beyond just your assessment to look at. You can also add an owners comment for the Zesitmate and include your appraisal amount date on your home page so at least people can see it.
