For Sale Nearby are either FSBO (For Sale By Owner) listings entered by the owner into Zillow, or are properties listed for sale with a Realtor who has entered the listing into the local MLS. The MLS broadcasts its inventory of listings out to various websites like Zillow, Trulia etc. and real estate brokerage websites, so buyers can search one common database for all the available listings.

Also Zillow has a page called "All About Comps" http://zillow.com/wikipages/All-About-Comps/ which can tell you about how the nearby houses influence the Zestimate for your property.
