I am a Realtor in New York and I know that the Zestimates from Zillow are off quite a bit in my area.  The best way for you to get a good estimate is to contact a local realtor and have them give you a Market Analysis.  This will be a more accurate detailing of what has sold recently and what is on the market now.

Good Luck

While Zillow can give you a "ballpark value", I wouldn't consider it to be accurate.

One way to determine the true value of your home is to hire an appraiser.  If you don't feel like paying an appraiser, the easiest way to get an accurate updated home value (cost) is to call a real estate agent in your area.  A Realtor can compare the value of your house with all the recent sales in your area.  Home values constantly change and it is difficult for web sites to stay current.  Real estate agents can also take into consideration all of the upgrades on your property and factor into a more accurate value.

Most Realtors will be glad to give you a free CMA on your house in the hopes of one day being able to earn your business.  To be on the fair side, you might want to tell them up front if you aren't interested in selling your home and are just curious on your home value.

Ask a local Realtor in the area for a CMA, comparative market analysis, to get a general estimate on those properties.
