Frankly I would contact a local REALTOR and make an appointment with them to view your home and give you the value.  Is there a reason you need to know- thinking about selling, want to lower your taxes, divorce, someone deceased, want to refinance? It makes a difference because to lower your taxes, it is a simple CMA and for other items it is more complex.

Hi Felicia C.-

Are you referring to the Zestimate value? If yes, just enter the address on the "find homes" tab and it will give you the home information with a Zestimate. You may also enter the city and state or the zip code of the area you want to search and just zoom in to see the home information and the Zestimate.


Additionally, not all homes on the website have a Zestimate. There are some properties that do not have Zestimate values because we do not have the home transaction history. This is possibly because the home is in a "non-disclosure" state (Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming) where transactions are not publicly reported.

 
If the home is not in those states, it might be that we have the tax assessed value and home information from local public records, but we do not have sales transactions from our data providers for the area.


Please note that the Zestimate is not the actual price and also not an appraisal. It is just a starting point in figuring out the true value of a house.


We do not offer the Zestimate as the basis of any specific real-estate-related financial transaction. It is still best if you will get an official appraisal that it will include the specific improvements you made for your property.


For more information about Zestimates, you may refer to this thread: http://www.zillow.com/for ... m?tid=891
