my zestimate is much too high for my neighborhood why?
The Zestimate is a starting point in figuring out the true value of a house. For one thing, the amount of data Zillow has affects the Zestimate accuracy. If your home facts are incorrect, you can update your facts, which may affect your Zestimate value. Also, Zillow has never been to your house, never seen your expertise with colors and landscaping. So they've given you a way to consider them (and other things) in calculating a home's value. Use the My Estimator tool to create your own estimate. If you are estimating your own house, you can even make your estimate public, which is extremely valuable if you're posting your home for sale.

How do I claim a listing as an agent?
Once you sign in and register, simply type in your address in the search field, click on your address on the map, then click "Edit" on the menu bar and there should be an option to claim your property. You will go through an easy process where you can claim your home by name verification or with official documentation.

Wrong address for our house in Ocean City, MD - how do I fix that??
If a real estate agent listed your property, the address is information is pulled from the local MLS, which, generally, pulls the information from your tax records. If you listed your property, information can be changed using the Edit function after clicking on Listings from the MyZillow tab.Peggy Lyn SpeicherRE/MAX Realty Centre, Inc.[link removed by moderator]

How do I determine the value of a house?
Mike,The best and most accurate way to determine a home's current value is through a real estate agent or an appraiser. That agent can run the comps in your area and let you know what the current market says.Peggy Lyn SpeicherRE/MAX Realty Centre, Inc.www.PeggyLyn.com

My builder tells me that I have 3100 sq ft, but your website said 2266, why?
The most obvious answer is that the tax records for your property shows 2226, as that's where Zillow pulls square footage information from. Check that, and if it's still incorrect, please let us know.Peggy Lyn SpeicherRE/MAX Realty Centre, Inc.[link removed by moderator]

I sold my home, yet it still appears active on Zillow. There is no menu to change the status. Help
Go to "My Zillow", click on your listings, and then click on cancel. It may take awhile for it to disappear but it is immediately removed so that if someone clicks on the property they won't be able to pull it up it will come up with an error message.
