Over a year ago the homeowner prevailed in a lawsuit against the city and were given clear deeds to the seawall, waterfront and all riparian rights.&nbsp;<br/>The Zestimate does not reflect waterfront, additional land area, seawall, dock and most importantly doesn't seem to use other waterfront homes for comps.&nbsp;<br/>How do we correct this?<br/>Sincerely Tom B<br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 08 Jul 2013 13:44:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Zillow-value-does-not-include-waterfront/500812/ 2013-07-08T13:44:00Z Why is my house zillow estimate so low?

If we have to go to <a href="http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/fore_lt/">foreclosure</a>, we'd take our normal mortgage payment and bail-out our credit card debt by paying it down so that his credit score goes up.&nbsp; Then when we have to move either rent, or have him buy a house at current market value.&nbsp; We'd get a bigger house for less money in our area.<br/><br/>Seems like the right thing to do, however I get mixed messages from people... mostly nesters who would want to stay for 10-20 years any way, we are NOT nesters, we intended to move after 5 years any way.<br/><br/>Thanks for any advice<br/><br \><br \>18 replies Mon, 09 Mar 2009 16:20:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/If-zillow-is-close-should-I-walk-away/208383/ 2009-03-09T16:20:00Z
