Why is zillow so bad at their estimates?

Zestimates bear no relation whatsoever to the comps in the neighborhood.

it's not even a starting point.  Does it make sense that a house decreased in value 33% over the past 6 months according to Zillow? (upscale gated well maintained neighborhood).  Does it make sense that a house built the same year, one less bedroom, 1000 fewer square feet, 4 houses away is worth 25% MORE than the larger house, same lot, same condition, same amenities?  There is no rational price per square foot methodology in the estimate.  It's just not remotely useful.

The zestimates are computer generated and simply a guess. Not to be taken seriously. More of a starting point.
