Zillow won't fix price sold mistakes despite public record

Despite reporting that Zillow posts a house sold as $2.97 million instead of actual $297,000, the publicly available wrong information continues years after the sale. The mispricing skews values. This makes Zillow unreliable and frustrating that there is no response to reporting mistakes. Contrast this with Google Maps where you get a response from a technician that they are looking into and fixing a reported mistake.

Hey! Have you tried reporting it properly? This is a link for reporting an incorrect sold price information of a property http://www.zillow.com/help/report-inaccuracies/ I think Zillow will verify it first then change or remove the incorrect data if they found out that you are indeed right.

What if the error in the price history doesn't have the flag?  Zillow has shown my house (at 123 NORTH Steet_name) as listed for sale when in fact the listing was for a house on the other end of the street (at 123 SOUTH Street_name).  I've claimed my home in Zillow and sent multiple requests but can't get history removed.

In your case user03708432 have you tried reporting it to Zillow Customer Support? Just provide them the details of the correction that needs to be done.
