I couldn't have said it any better.  Zillow is a good tool to a degree, but rarely accurate.  Also, many people get confused and think that all houses on Zillow are for sale but they're not.  Nothing beats the accuracy of a real human eye on the property when it comes to determining value.

Zestimates are rarely accurate. Zillow has no way to know what upgrades one home has over another, which is why those values are worthless to most professionals. Zillow does not distinguish where neighborhood boundaries lie and can lump 2 or 3 very different neighborhoods and price ranges together because they are in close proximity to each other (which is good for the lower end home needing work and bad for the higher end home in good condition). There is no way anyone out there can determine value without seeing the home in person to see its current condition. No online program will ever replace a personal visit from a realtor or appraiser. I have found that many Zillow estimates are off by a significant amount.
