You need to hire a CA licensed appraiser in your neighborhood. It does not come for free as you have read.

Zillow provides and estimate of value, it does not provide a Market Value that you get from a licensed appraiser/appraisal...$Good Luck$

You can find an estimate using public data for most residential properties in the US, however, Zillow does not provide appraisals.  

to find the estimate, enter the address in the box on the home page and click on the blue button

The short answer is you can't. 
An appraisal is a purchased opinion. They can also very a little. They are normally only reliable for a few weeks to a month, depending on how the local market is going.

Since an appraisal is usually associated with some type of new loan, it actually belongs to the person purchasing it (i.e. borrower and/or lender).  Whoever receives the appraisal can do what they like with it, but it will not automatically update into any online database (such as Zillow).  The current owner of a property could potentially update their own property info with a recent appraisal amount, but that will not mean that it is accurate any longer.  Since there are many factors that impact an appraisal number, they are really only good for the purpose they are being ordered for in the first place.  

Think of it like this...I am selling my home, and the buyer's lender orders an appraisal of the home.  For some reason, the buyer does not purchase the property.  I decide not to sell, and two weeks later add a pool to the property.  The original appraisal would not have taken any updates and/or defects into consideration that happened after the appraiser was there.

If you are interested in finding out what a market value of a property is, contact your local Realtor, they have tools available to assist with that.
