Is zillow authorized to show estimates on Home properties?

I noticed Zillow estimates are not accurate. It hurts when they estimate a property lower.

Thanks for your reply. However, if you are showing values that are not per County records and taxes, does it not infringe on the rights of property owners? Also, on what basis you can show two adjacent homes that are similar to be of very different value?

Zillow is authorized by the first amendment of the constitution. The freedom of speech allows them to give an opinion of value regardless of its accuracy or inaccuracy.

A couple of pieces of reading for background:

What is a Zestimate?
Data Coverage and Zestimate accuracy.

In the US, data on homes is often public.  A Zestimate is Zillow's opinion, one of many sites that shares AVMs.   One does not need authorization to share an opinion.
