If we had the house appraised, would that help change the zestimate? &nbsp;We are selling our home, and worry that the zestimate value will discourage shoppers. The zestimate listed online is $266,693. I can understand a small difference, but that is substantial! The home has been fully remodeled and upgraded to be energy efficient and modern. We have added decks, porches, shed and landscaping... all of which don't seem to effect the zestimate, but does make our home more desirable than others.<br \><br \>3 replies Sat, 14 Jun 2014 18:10:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/zestimate-value-too-low-will-a-current-appraisal-help/545520/ 2014-06-14T18:10:00Z So when looking at the units should I trust the rent amount or the rent zestiment? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/So-when-looking-at-the-units-should-I-trust-the-rent-amount-or-the-rent-zestiment/520874/ 0 replies Thu, 05 Dec 2013 16:42:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/So-when-looking-at-the-units-should-I-trust-the-rent-amount-or-the-rent-zestiment/520874/ 2013-12-05T16:42:00Z Why Zestimate less than Assessed Value & Less than Appraisal done in 2010 http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-Zestimate-less-than-Assessed-Value-Less-than-Appraisal-done-in-2010/512545/ Your Zestimate of property value is COMPLETELY WRONG.&nbsp; No wonder I've had over 800 "Lookie Lous" and NOT A SINGLE PHONE CALL!!!!!!&nbsp; My home was APPRAISED for $290,000 in 2010 and property values have GONE UP 8% PER YEAR SINCE THEN.&nbsp; I pay property taxes on an Assessed Value that is HIGHER&nbsp; THAN WHAT YOUR ZESTIMATE IS!!!&nbsp; This property has been continuously updated--i.e., new furnace, new water heater, new energy efficient e-glass double pane windows throughout, real oak floors,&nbsp;and new&nbsp;Berber carpets in bedrooms.&nbsp; This house is in EXCELLENT CONDITION.&nbsp; Please CORRECT YOUR ERROR and change/update the Zestimate value to a more REALISTIC FIGURE of $325,000.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br \><br \>7 replies Mon, 23 Sep 2013 17:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-Zestimate-less-than-Assessed-Value-Less-than-Appraisal-done-in-2010/512545/ 2013-09-23T17:04:00Z Why is your Zestimate on this property so DRASTICALLY LOW? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-your-Zestimate-on-this-property-so-DRASTICALLY-LOW/512489/ How did you arrive at the Zestimate pricing for the above listed property?&nbsp; Please change it to a realistic Zestimate of at least $325,000.&nbsp; Prospective buyers are being "turned off" by the Zestimate price you have placed on this property.&nbsp; Please give me a detailed explanation to "justify" your pricing.&nbsp; Thank you!<br \><br \>0 replies Mon, 23 Sep 2013 04:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-your-Zestimate-on-this-property-so-DRASTICALLY-LOW/512489/ 2013-09-23T04:32:00Z why is Zillow so far off? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/why-is-Zillow-so-far-off/499295/ Why is the Zillow estimate so wrong??<br/><br/>Property taxes are based on a much higher assessment. <br/><br/>An appraisal done in 2007 valued the home at $800,000 and that was as a single family home and unfurnished.<br \><br \>1 reply Thu, 27 Jun 2013 17:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/why-is-Zillow-so-far-off/499295/ 2013-06-27T17:22:00Z How long will it take for updated changes made to my homes ammenities? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-long-will-it-take-for-updated-changes-made-to-my-homes-ammenities/495131/ 1 reply Mon, 03 Jun 2013 05:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-long-will-it-take-for-updated-changes-made-to-my-homes-ammenities/495131/ 2013-06-03T05:14:00Z The square footage is wrong for my house (off by 1000sq ft). http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-square-footage-is-wrong-for-my-house-off-by-1000sq-ft/447276/ I updated the info as an owner but Zillow says they have their numbers from public data.
