Although the estimate may be flawed, it could come into play when it is time to sell your home. Use it as one point of reference only. If you are thinking of selling, have 2-3 brokers come in to present to you and give you an idea of what your house value may be. If your house has lost $25,000+ in value, make sure that at least one of the agents understands short sales in case that is an avenue you need to explore.

You do need an experienced local Realtor, who will have a look at your home, also telling you what is
up to date and what is not and what needs to be updated, or what you need to do to make your home ready for sale, if that is what you intend to do, if you just want to know what you home is worth in today's
market the experienced Realtor will take inventory of your home, lot size, location, upgrades etc. and
then compare yours to those recently sold, and will make adjustments plus or minus to those sales numbers to come up with a sale price range for your home, much more trustworthy, but then of course
those are also estimates based on the current market facts, which can change over time..... or depend
on the negotiations with a ready and willing buyer and what that ready and willing buyer is willing to
pay for your home....

Zillow is usually off and trails behind the appreciating market.
The only true way to find out what a buyer would pay is to put it on the market. The rest is a lot of guesswork.
For an accurate market analysis of your home, I suggest you have a professional visit your home and provide you with the most accurate comparables. I would love the opportunity to help you.
Hope to hear from you soon.
