A zestimate is an estimated value of your property based on the information submitted to Zillow.  In order to get the most accurate information you should contact a real estate agent who can give you a competitive market analysis on the property.  This will give you the most current and accurate value of your home.

It's an estimate of value based on information gathered from 3rd parties like public documents which are often incomplete and/or inaccurate. At best they are 'generic' and therefore rarely apply closely enough to the property you have to give a 'real time' market value. They are a ball park estimate at best and no buyer serious about any property ever uses it to base an offer on.
