What does "This home has been claimed by owner. " mean?

We want to know what this phrase means? It only occurs about 5 times in all of Zillow

Hey lcd3rd,
   "Claimed by Owner" usually means that a registered Zillow user had claimed their home on Zillow.  The following is an answer link to follow. The question was answered best by Ash_Lee of Zillow:

The Zestimate for this 3,308 square foot, three bedroom Tudor in Kansas City, Mo. is $905,254. The value range is $760,413 to $1.1 million.

Now, what Zillow doesn't know is that the house was on the market last year for $699,950 -- more than $150,000 less than the original asking price.

After the home was on the market for about 18 months, owners Katheryn J. Shields and her husband Phillip F. Cardarella were approached by some folks who have since been indicted for mortgage fraud.

It simply means that the owner has verified that it is their home in the Zillow records and perhaps updated information on it.
