How can I select comps for owner estimate?

I have created an owner estimate for our house and would like to select comps as part of the estimate.  When I click on the 'comps' it does not show any comps that can be selected.  Do I have to do something to list the comps to select from?  There are a number of houses nearby which are listed or recently sold so I know there are suitable comps which could be used.

I've found the same exact issue. Ever since they took away the ability to choose comps, my house value had plummeted by over $37,000. I'm very unhappy about this, as I am planning to sell my home for more than the zillow estimated amount in about 6 months or so, and will have a hard time doing so now that they took this away and compare my home to lower-quality homes.

I used to be able to select or deselect comps based on if they are next to an undesirable element like a freeway or if there is a view worth as much as the house improvements.

I can not find that ability other than some generic filters that zillow almost does automatically already.

I agree with agents opinions that the zillow estimates are too generic, too limited, and cause an ignorance of a home value. I always argued hand selecting comps removed the narrow limits of Zillow filters.

It seems no longer possible to manually select comps to improve over the Zillow comp filters. Hence a new online listing service is needed to be found.
