How to correct or change Zestimate

On a 4-house cul-de-sac, the 30-day value change for 3 of the homes has increased $10K-19K.  My home is the only house that has DECREASED in value by -$3K for the same timeframe. The property has not been sold or altered in any way to explain this downward calculation. How can I get the information corrected?

You could go to the trouble of "Claiming your Home" and then make adjustments accordingly.  Alternatively, in a more practical way, you could entirely ignore the inaccurate Zestimate, since it doesn't really affect your life.  If you really need to know your home's value right now, then simply hire an appraiser.  If you plan to sell your home, contact local experts to show you comps for similar homes and provide you with a CMA.  If you were upside down, and want to refinance, contact a lender.  Values go up, values go down, base on market forces and supply-and-demand.  Fortunately, for the majority of homeowners, their true home value remains insignificant until they sell, transfer or refi-....  Zillow does not control home values, they just try to Zestimate them.  The most common question posted by consumers on this site is "why is my home value so low?" -- so, obviously Zillow cannot be a reliable resource for a home buyer or seller when it comes to determining accurate home VALUE.  I hope this helps!
