This algorithm includes items such as home facts, price history and tax assessment where applicable. The Zestimate is simply an estimate using the data we have on your home. Please note that the Zestimate is not meant to replace a professional appraisal or comparative market analysis.<br/><br/>We provide resources that will answer your questions about your Zestimate and Rent Zestimate:<br/><br/><a href="http://www.zillow.com/wikipages/What-is-a-Zestimate/">Zestimate FAQ</a>: <br/><a href="http://www.zillow.com/help/zestimate-disputes/">Zestimate Disputes</a>:<br/><br/>If you notice that your home facts are incomplete or incorrect, you can edit them by following these instructions <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsXbczStuAI">here</a>: Once you update your home facts, it will take up to 8 weeks for the new facts to be completely incorporated into the algorithm for your home's Zestimate.
