Basically a Zestimate is useless.

The primary item that determines value is what comparable properties sold for. Zillow is weak on that from the beginning, in that its computer algorithms aren't very good at identifying comps. The second problem, as Don Groff points out, is that Texas is a non-disclosure state. So if Zillow isn't accurate to begin with, then you put it in a state where it really CAN'T find comps, you're only wasting time with it.
Then, on top of all that, asking prices are just that--asking prices. Even if Zillow is 100% accurate even in a non-disclosure state, that doesn't mean that the asking price is on target.
Find a local Realtor who can determine what the property is worth. If it's worth more than other nearby properties, your Realtor will be able to explain why.
Hope that helps.
Zestimates are not very valuable here in Texas. We are a non-disclosure state so it is not required for a home buyer to disclose what they actually paid for a home unless it benefits them for tax purposes.
You would really want to have your Realtor pull comparalbe homes from their MLS as that will give you a true idea of the value. Homes can vary in price for many reasons. Possibly the data you are getting is incomplete or maybe the home is over improved. It's really impossible to say without digging in deep and looking at all of the information available.
Best of luck to you.
