I have added new photos to my listing on pine drive, but they are not showing up.

Zillow can take several hours before your photos may start showing up live.  If you have successfully uploaded they should appear by tomorrow.

Why is my zestimate so low?

Best Answer
Don't fret!!  As Hamp mentioned in his comment Zillow has no idea of what updates and improvements you've made to increase the value of your home. I feel Zillow's "Zestimates" only confuse buyers as well as sellers.

What are the three most important traits that an excellent realtor should possess?

Answer
Looking for a great real estate agent?  Look for an agent who is experienced and works in the area/s or niche market you are interested in buying. While I'm licensed in the state of PA, I specialize in several  niche areas (such as Downtown Pittsburgh, condos, new construction, Sq. Hill, Shadyside, Mt. Washington and other City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods).  Do your homework, research on-line which Realtors® specialize in the area/s you are interested in.  Working as a buyers agent requires a lot of COMMUNICATION, trust and commitment.  Personalities must also align, you should feel confident and comfortable with your agent from the start.  A good Realtor® listens to your needs, clarifies questions, helps you find homes that meet your criteria, responds quickly with assists with setting up showings, prepares and presents contracts and helps to negotiate the best price.

How do you determine that my home has "lost value" vs previous zestimate?

Answer
Frankly I think the problem here is Zillow's data is not always accurate. Zillow doesn't take in to account remodels, they haven't gone in these homes!  Take these "Zestimates" with a grain of salt and talk with an experienced Realtor when you are have questions about a local area.

Why is my house value continuing to decrease when my neighbors' houses seem to be increasing?

Answer
I'm not sure why you are getting your data.  What makes you think your neighbors home value is increasing or that your home's value is decreasing?  More information would be useful.

Pittsburgh Help

Best Answer
The answers below are all good.  In addition, CMU probably also has a housing site as well as the Art Institute.  Contact a local Realtor who can keep an eye out for a nice property.  Areas like the South Side, Oakland, Sq. Hill and Shadyside may be good locations for you to search.

Will listing with zillow get me on the mls listings

Answer
No, Zillow gets data from the MLS but it doesn't get you on the MLS. There are discount brokers that charge a minimum fee to get your home on the MLS but I suggest hiring a top agent who can effectively market your home.
