Why is my home worth less than the other homes in my neighborhood?

I have one of the larger plots in the development of Eichler homes in the 94087 postal code.  My home was built in 1960.  I have remodeled extensively, and have one small and one large storage shed on the property.  I cannot understand why Zillow has given my home the lowest Zestimate  in my neighborhood.

because Zillow is an algorithim, not a person.

Eiclers are architectural homes and can only be valued accurately by an appraiser or Realtor, NOT a free home value site like Zillow, so dont expect accuracy.

Read this and learn what a Zestimate isnt....

the zillow estimate does not represent the Market Value of your home...see this great article on [hotlink removed by Zillow Moderator]

Good luck!
