Zillow Announces Zestimate Improvements

Response
Looks like Zillow pulled data out of peoples private estimates made using the estimating tool. This is a big no-no. Private means that the person did not want the public to see it, otherwise they would have made their estimate public!

What happened to zestimates?
Seems like they redid their formulas and changed estimates going back as well. Same home now shows different graphs. some of them don't make any sense with values jumping up and down beyond reason. Does anyone notice this. Does anyone know what they did?

Does anyone know the max hight for a 1 story house in Palo Alto before it needs ARB review?

Answer
If anyone else is looking: City of Palo alto considers buildings under 17ft above finished floor be 1 story buildings. Though if you have a flat roof 2 story and manage to get it under 17ft, it's still a 2 story.

Architecrual Review Board is required for all two story buildings. But if it's a one story  but I want a higher roof. At what height point does it require the ARB review?

zillow create your own estimate gives a lower estimate for a 2 story home, than a 1 story. why?
For all other variables held the same, the create your own estimate tool gives a lower estimate for a 2 story home than one story. Does anyone know why that is? I am looking in Palo Alto, CA.
