When will Zestimate re-run if a home was recently updated?

We finished our basement and added a full bath, wet bar, bedroom and additional square footage.  Wondering if the Zestimate will ever adjust to reflect the changes I made to our home on Zillow to include this remodel?

your best bet is to use the "Owner's Estimate" Under the "Zestimate" on your house's page. This will allow you to add the value of any home improvements made to your house.

Not totally true. Zillow can only value remodels that they can see in a sales price, a higher assessment value, additional square footage or something like that.

You can note the improvements on your home page or in the Zestimate comment. Zillow used to have an owner's estimate where you could show added value on the page for remodels, but that is offline for reworking until I think April.

It seems to take 8-10 weeks for changes to be reflected in Zillow.

The Zestimate updates in response to substantial changes in home facts but it takes time.   As you updated facts today, be aware it takes several weeks to several months.  The last one I monitored carefully was 8 weeks.
