If you look at the historical graph for your Zestimate, you'll see that it is rather jagged.   This is not unusual with a statistical model and a relatively small community with few sales.   The Zestimate is not a home appraisal but a number calculated by a computer using public data.   Zillow doesn't know about your home improvements unless the tax assessor changes your  home's tax assessment (which hasn't happened).    Your home's Zestimate appears to be the highest in the neighborhood by a long shot.  I always prefer to have the cheapest home in the neighborhood so the other houses pull it up rather than vica versa.

You are welcome to claim your home on Zillow and add new photos.
