Sunnyview explained it well. But remember, a Zestimate is only a guess - its not the real value of your home. That will only be found if and when you sell it. Until then, Zestimate - as well as appraisals - are only educated opinions.

You can't directly update the Zestimate for your home, but you can update your home facts to make your Zestimate more accurate. 

Owners can edit the basic house information and create an owner's estimate after they claim their house. On your main house page, you can claim your house with the yellow "Edit" pencil icon on your home page under the main house photo.
After you claim your house you should see an "Edit home facts" link in the same "Edit" menu. You might also consider doing an owner's estimate if you have remodeled.

The changes you make to your home page are immediate, but if they cause your Zestimate to change then that can take longer from 6-8 weeks from what I read. Hope the info helps.
