Zillow Estimate is too low!

We have added about $20,000. of home improvements to our home.  Houses sold in our area range from low $300,000 to mid $400,000.  We paid a premium of $4000. for our lot at 431 Kennedy Road because of wonderful view (privacy).  This is not included in our z estimate.  Also, new front door, his/her closets, laundry cabinets (full wall), and new energy efficient dishwasher.  Full landscaping front/back.  New front door!  There is NO representation of these improvements in our home price for 431 Kennedy Road, Collegeville PA 19426.

"There is NO representation of these improvements in our home price for 431 Kennedy Road, Collegeville PA 19426." -

That is "correct" no "improvements" since purchase are taken into consideration on any of the Zestimates.  As for "views", that is factored in by heavily weighting the price paid adjusted for the date purchased on the Estimate modeling and extrapolation.

For more information, see the "what is a Zestimate" FAQ.

The "my estimate" feature will allow for these "custom improvement" adjustments, but that is still "off line" for programming revisions presently and it is not clear when it will be available again.
