Well here we are on May 1st and NO sign of it and most unlikely it will ever reappear. It seems that zillow gain more advertising revenue from the controversy of incorrect zestimates and the owners zestimate tool would most likely reduce that revenue as people would be less inclined to check their own zestimate. Write and complain - it would at least help the USPS revenues which provides a proper public service instead of the nonsense zillow provides.

You will only really know how much your home is REALLY worth if and when you sell it, not before. <br/> Tue, 01 May 2012 22:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-unlock-Owners-Estimate-so-that-it-is-public/441119/ 2012-05-01T22:22:00Z
