Zillow Advice: Housing Market - The value of our home is inaccurate. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-value-of-our-home-is-inaccurate/395575/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Zestimate uses a compulation ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-value-of-our-home-is-inaccurate/395575/ Zestimate uses a compulation of tax based transfers. Someof the tax transfers Zillow uses are bank buy backs/foreclosures in addition to refinances which are transfers, but; are not at value transfers. The most cost effective way to obtain an accurate value for your home is to have a competent agent provide a comparable market analysis for you. An alternative way is a formal apraisal which will cost you about $500.00 If you want a free no obligation comparable market analysis let me know.
