Zillow updated their algorithm for calculation of Zestimates on the evening of June 13.  Consequently, many saw big changes in the Zestimate for their home.

My assessment is that your average is based on other recent sales in your area, and since we still have a lot of short sales and foreclosures taking place, at any given time, there could be several very low sales in your area; especially if your home is above average in size, condition or upgrades.  If your home is above average, then most homes would be selling below your expected price; especially those with condition issues or lower prices due to short sale.
