Question of your Zillow Quote

How can your company think that this residence: 803 East Main Street  Yorkville, IL  60560  is so much lower in value than the other houses in the neighborhood.  Are you crazy ??  We have put as much into our home as others have in the neighborhood and your site thinks this house has went down 3x more than others ??  How do you justify this?   Just curious as this is no way accurate .. 

Please send the response to this address as I am very curious on how your company came up w/ our house value..

Welcome to Zillow.  Zillow offers Zestimates, numbers generated by a computer model from the data available on your  home.   These Zestimates are not quotes, not appraisals, not CMAs - but rough estimates to start to compare homes. 

If you open your home details page here, you'll see that Zillow has no information on size of the house, bedrooms, bathrooms, lot size etc.     The more data Zillow has, the better their Zestimate but even then, it is a starting point and doesn't include upgrades and other things (such as views) that may add value.

As so much data are missing, if you claim your home on Zillow and edit the data the Zestimate may respond.   It responds slowly (several weeks to several months).
