your estimates make no sense

we live in a community of 7 homes

1 cody court rancho mirage, ca 92270 thru 7 cody court...all homes are identical and the two most recent sales are 899 grand and 680 grand .. both of these sales are in the back least desirable location.. our home , in the front on the golf course just across from Frank Sinatra's house is only valued at 429 grand , the least in the complex although all brokers say ours is worth the most.. why does Zillow have such an incorrect listing here ????

thanks Elizabeth ... the problem is that we live in a community with 8 nearly identical homes, all historic landmark mid-century modern by a famous architect... of the 8 homes, one in the far back with no views is valued at 800 grand as that is what it sold for 6 months ago , another way in the back at 690 as that is what it sold for and yet our home which is the largest , on the golf course with insane views and has been published in over a dozen magazines and four major books is valued at only 429 grand which makes no sense at all. Zillow seems to have a flawed appraising system .All 8 houses are nearly identical so their appraisal is incorrect.

As for the value of being on a golf course, anyone looking in our area would find it a positive... the course and mountain views are amazing and no one that knows this area would ever consider that to be a negative

Homes are selling for a little over $200 per sf in Tamarisk Country Club.  But there is a wide range of price on homes for sale, ranging from $157 per sf up to $800 per sf.  If you email me your address and description of your house I can send you a free comparable market analysis for your area. 

And, wetdawgs, most buyers in the Palm Springs to Indio area that are purchasing in a country club community prefer to be on the golf course.  The views are stunning and relaxing, it is one of the things that makes our community so unique.

There are two things to evaluate:

Are all facts correct?   I notice that the facts reported range from 1.75 to 3.0 bathrooms in the houses mentioned, so perhaps there are some errors.    Claim your home and edit the facts that may be incorrect.

Are the comps used appropriate?    You can change these also (once you've claimed your home).

If these changes affect the Zestimate, it will take a few weeks to a few months to be reflected in the numbers on this site.

Zillow is does not include some features that add value (such as proximity to a golf course).  These features are best called out in the "owner's estimate".  (If I were a buyer in your area, I'd find proximity to a gold course a negative.)
