Why are your estimates so incredibly off the mark in our particular subdivision?

You could not be doing a worse job of saying which homes have the higher value in our subdivision;Most of the homes have little to no upgrades in them but the ones which have expensive upgrades,have lowers values than the ones with no upgrades at all; Some homes,like mine have over a hundred thousand of added upgrades but are valued less than ones with no upgrades at all.

Zestimates are (as the other poster mentioned) calculated off the core facts of the house.   Zillow doesn't have the slightest idea who has hardwood floors or cheapo linoleum.   As such , Zestimate are a starting point for comparison of houses, not an end point.

However, there is a tool where you can declare your upgrades called "my estimate".  Once you've claimed your home, you can tinker with the "my estimate" and you have a choice to keep it private or make it public.  (Many are shocked to learn how little the upgrades add to the price estimate)

Hi Rose, I know, zestimates, can be frustrating. Zillow pulls data from various sources & does not know of all the upgrades you out into the home. It goes on square footage, lot size, bedrooms, baths etc & does not factor in views or location. The best way to get your zestimate up, is to claim your listing as the home owner & update the facts. To do this, type in your address, this will pull up the details page, click on "edit" under the photos/descriptions to claim the property.
