It's been completely redone and was reassessed by the town at $265,550 and appraised similarly when I bought it. Your records indicate the old assessment before it was redone which was substantially lower. I know this is an important part of the algorithm and hope you can update your records accordingly.

Purposely undervalue and force us to become members. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-Zillow-BULLYING-homeowners-Purposely-undervalue-and-force-us-to-become-members/453902/ I'm surely convinced the Zillow is surely BULLYING homeowners.<br/><br/>They purposely undervalue your home and let this information linger out there. Homeowners try to correct it by creating a login and 'claim their homes'. We end up giving away personal information. This makes Zillow have millions of new 'members'. Then, once your claim your home, value still does not go up 'cos they want to capture more personal information about your home, your profession... When will this Bullying stop? <br/><br/>Now, all I want is to delete my membership and start a campaign against Zillow and perhaps lead to a law-suit. But without being a member of this group. <br/><br/>and, also the key is to not worry what Zillow thinks my home worth is. We make these companies powerful, it's a shame!
