Zillow Consistency on Values

Zillow estimates our home at $144k and our next door neighbor at $168k.  Trulia estimates our home at $170k and our next door neighbor at $172k.  Why is the house next door the same value on both sites, but ours so low on Zillow?

It really doesn't matter.  Zillow is not a licensed real estate broker, and there is not one single mortgage lender that will use a Zillow Zestimate for a home valuation.  Basically, Zillow Zestimates are irrelevant.

Mortgage brokers and realtors may know that Zillow estimates are whacked, but buyers may not and may also use that valuation to try to negotiate down.  In addition, if Trulia can produce more accurate estimates, why is Zillow considered an expert. E.g., our local respected real estate journalist had a seminar with questions for Zillow president (or some officer of the company).  Why would anyone even want to hear what he has to say when the Zillow figures are so wrong?
