Zestimate and mother in law cottage

Answer
I think it would be difficult since they use tax records to come up with the zestimate. I would make it clear in the listing information and then use the price per sq. ft. that zillow uses and times it by the sq. footage of the cottage and then make it clear that this is not included in your zestimate. I hope you find this useful.

What are the responsibilities af real estate agent's?

Answer
This is why it is good to have a pre approval letter where the lender runs a credit check and approves the buyer for a certain amount and not just a pre qualification letter where the lender has not checked the credit and is relying on the information given by the borrower.

Does the zestimate get effected (pos./neg.) if the lot size is incorrect? (see below)

Answer
I would think so since price is based off of sqare footage for homes and lots or acreage for land.
