When will Zillow update the bird's eye view image?

The bird's eye view of my house is very old showing a pre-reno image from over 8 years ago. Google's seems to be the most up to date. When will Zillow use more updated images?

The birds eye views that Zillow references are from Microsoft Bing, usually taken and owned by Pictometry International Corp.

Zillow has absolutely no control of what Pictometry International nor Microsoft Bing provides.

Besides, the commercial satellites only tend to pass over the same spot approximately once every year or 2, and if there is cloud cover when passing over, the photos have to be thrown out, so they can only be replaced if the sky was relatively clear at the time.

Google uses a different set of commercial satellites, so of course their images will be taken on a different date.

It is just the luck of the draw for the timing for any given satellite.
