Plat of Survey, and it shows 2030 sq.ft. which includes the main house only, and not the addition Florida room, or a two story accessory building, or garage for that matter.

Zillow estimates are all but worthless. Don't let it bother you at all.

no sure where the info is collected but you can edit the info if you are the homeowner. there should be an edit tab. it will list homeowners. click on your name and I think give your email then it will email you a confirmation and you can put in correct info, add photos, etc... its annoying b.c they aren't giving a true representation of your home and this could be misleading to potential buyers!!! grr
