We recently had an appraisal on our home and the value is higher than the zestimate.

Can the Zestimate be changed ?

You are welcome to share your appraisal amount in the owner estimate section of your home, but Zillow does not change the Zestimate based on an appraiser's opinion.  This would lead to great inconsistency of Zestimates rather than all using the same parameters.  

Their FAQ "What is a Zestimate?" provides considerably more detail.

Don't worry about the zestimate. Most consumers have been prepped by there realtors to know that these are not accurate. Your appraisal will trump a zestimate any day.
