Why is the price of my house so low compared to the comparible house next door?

I am getting ready to sell my house, 315 Blackheath Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15205, and was horrified to see that you have priced my house lower than my next door neighbor's at 317 Blackheath Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15205.  My house has more square feet and more bathrooms.  Our yard are comparible.  He purchased his for $410K and I purchased mine in 1998 for $400K. His assessment is under $400K and mine is $425K. How can I get my house price higher?

There appear to be two entries for your home, one is missing some data (such as lot size and house size), the other one has a higher Zestimate (click here)
