My home was withdrawn to make major improvements. Can the original price be deleted? Thanks!

I think you can feel confident that if the home is worth what you are asking, you will find that it is a non issue. Good luck selling your newly renovated home!

Thanks. I will explain to potential buyers that I continuously have been making improvements to the property, and that the new price reflects those substantive improvements.

If it was honestly advertised, it remains in history.   If you made a typo and corrected it 10 minutes later, then Zillow will delete the typo.

Yes, if it was advertised as being for sale for $1, then it will always be in the history. It will be in the history of multiple other sites also, including the history of the local MLS if it was listed there. However, what it was advertised for has no bearing on its actual value. 

The value of a home owner's listing price is that you are saying this is what you are willing to take for your home. However, the reality is that what your home is really worth is what a consumer is willing to pay, and often what an appraiser says a bank should loan on it.

So, if I originally listed my home on Zillow as $1, even though it was appraised at $1MM, then $1 would still appear?

What value, then, is a homeowner's own listing price? Seems very subjective to me.

No but if you saved the receipts and lien waivers, the list can be added to the listing to justify your listing price.  Also, make sure you have your agent add the Featured Items page to your listing and in the property for showings.  

If you have any reason to doubt getting that price adjustment approved without quarrels, have an appraiser resolve the issue to ensure you get your money back for your investment.
