How Accurate is a Zillow "zestimate"?
Barbara Gallo September 4, 2014
Without actually going inside your home and seeing all the upgrades and improvements you have made over the years, all Zillow can do to arrive at its "zestimate" is compare your home to others that have sold in your area. 
A REALTOR® on the other hand, can compare 'apples to apples' by looking at similar homes, with similar improvements, square footage and age, that have sold in the last 6 months and hone in on your home's value in the current market far more accurately.  Zillow's website has some startling statistics and by their own admission, fall short more often than not.
