Zestimates

How does Zillow come up with Zestimates?  Most of them seem to make no sense whatsoever.  For example, two condos side by side, both in same condition, but the smaller square footage unit has an Zestimate of $191,000, and the larger unit has an Zestimate of $158,000  Same number of bedrooms and baths.

Sometimes they are not accurate. What I've found is that areas that offer similar properties show the best results and those homes that are closer into town. Those in the country and non-conforming properties and limited sales (i.e. condos) will not give a reasonable value.
