Zillow doesn't tend to discuss Zestimates for individual properties and doesn't make manual changes.   But, there are some things you can do:

1.  Look at your property details.  Are all the facts correct?  It is amazing how many people see an error when checking these carefully.   Claim your home and edit them.

2.  Look at the facts of the other homes.  While you can't change them, you can note if suddenly the 900 square foot home next door has 99 bathrooms (a true example). 

If you make corrections, the Zestimate may recalculate but be patient.  It can take several weeks to several months.

In addition, when Zillow rolled out the new algorithm for Zestimates in the middle June a small portion of properties started to show crazy values.  If you think (after fact checking) that your property is in that category you can click on "edit" under the description, then "report problem with home" and report it to see if it falls into the Zestimate crazies.  I suspect it will be a while until these are smoothed out with 100,000,000 homes and >1000 variations of the algorithm to work through.
