A "Zestimate" in an estimate of your home value based on public information of homes and previous sales in your area. I suggest contacting a local real estate agent for an accurate evaluation of your home.

@dollarbill8:  You are welcome to claim your home and edit incorrect home facts.  The Zillow help center can be found at the ? in the upper right corner of the webpage.

As your state government decided home data are public, anyone can use it.  Sounds like you need to contact your representatives if you wish for it to change.

What the Zillow estimate means is they post your home without your permission and then keep lowering the price. You contact Zillow and they treat u like a ***** flavored Popsicle as they won't do anything to help you. Example my home was listed and now they will not remove it as requested. The Sq ft. is wrong. Lot size wrong. Price is wrong as they compaire it to hoames that are nothing like yours. They will not contact you by phone and are total **** via E mail. They claim it is public information. If I were you I would not deal at all with them. Bill Wisconsin home.

I'm pretty sure Josh meant to say... The "Zestimate" is not always that accurate...

The "Zestimate" is always that accurate.  It takes very basic information for you home and past sales.  For a better representation of your home, contact a Realtor to provide you with a detailed market analysis.

A "zestimate" is an estimated value by Zillow of that property. For a more accurate estimate check with a local Realtor and ask for a comparative market analysis (CMA).

A Zestimate is a computer generated approximation of a properties value based on sales activity for similar properties in that immediate area.  It is not exact.  If you want a more exact valuation you should contact a local Realtor and discuss the specific property with them.
