How to update the zestimates of my property to the fair value around my neighborhood?

I disagreed the zestimate of my property  in zillow.  I recently put my house on the market thru zillow.  It was appraised $499,000 as of Apr 2013  by usaa bank official appraiser  however you estimated  $408,000 which was much lower than average around my subdivision.  Could you check the value of the property again?

Don"t listen to the zillow customer service people!!!! zillow is destroying your house value. most people are not aware of the fact that a zestimate is not an appraisal and treat it as a fair market value of your home. now that zillow is powering most real estate sites and their zestimate is right under your asking price people are looking at the zestimate and trying to deal off that price. bobby and ice you are both full of $hit and are giving a company answer. sunny you and thousands of other people property is un-fairly being destroyed by zillow and there is nothing you can do about it because they never respond to e-mails or phone calls because they are not intelligent enough to give us a correct answer so the give you a standard pre-typed answer that you see here.

This is a general misconception with the public.  Zestimates are not market analysis of your property and in most cases are not close to what a property is worth as they are pulled from public record.  The best way to find out the value of your home is to contact a Realtor to perfom a market analysis of your property.  This will inform you of your homes value in our current market.

Zestimates are not appraisals and we do not use appraisal data to calculate them. We use public property information available at your county offices - such as assessed value, beds, bath, prior sales, recently sold prices - to calculate a Zestimate based on all the information we know about your home.

Thank you.
