Claim your listing and then you can make the changes.  Find a local agent who is familiar with the Zillow system and perhaps they can walk through the property and help you with the update of the data.  The data in Zillow is based on collection of data from public sources.  You might also need to update your info at your town hall so that public info is correct. If the value is higher than presently reported this may in the end be reflected in new tax assessment. Plan accordingly.

To get a true value let a Real Estate Agent do a CMA on your property. They have the tools to see what it will go for in this market.  With so many homes on the market, it will only be worth what someone is willing to pay. So find an agent you trust and get a Comparable Market Analysis.

Get a Real-estate professional in there and they will give you someFree Market Analysis on your house. The comparables will look at what has Sold in the last 6 months in about a 1 mile radius. You can also get a bank Appraisal at your own cost.

Best of Luck,

The best way to know the true marketable value of your home is to have a real estate agent do a CMA Comparative Market Analysis. This will give you information on what the market is willing to spend in your area based on comparable homes in your area.

Why do you need a true value from Zillow?  Unfortunately, Zillow is notorious for having incorrect values, up to 20% some say.  Most real estate agents will do a BMA (Broker Market Analysis) for you free of charge.  Try that, or you can always pay for an appraisal.
