Zillow is an estimate of value, they say it, we say it , over and over again. If you sell your house based on what zillow says its worth, then you are probably not selling it for what it is worth.&nbsp;<br/>Hire a local appraiser, who knows your area and your real estate values and find out what your house is worth or contact a LOCAL realtor and ask them to do a comparative market analysis. Zillow is not accurate. You can however go in to My Zillow, top right and update your information so that potentially you could add some value,however some people do that and over inflate what is in their house, so again, the value is skewed.They say they have more bedrooms then there really are there and give the home a larger lot size, they say there are more updates in the home then there really are and again the value of the home goes up, but its not accurate. Hope that all helps you out.<br/> Mon, 17 Oct 2011 09:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/please-update-my-zest-effective-ASAP-all-the-homes-next-to-me-went-up-10k-mine-went-down-14k/419504/ 2011-10-17T09:39:00Z
