Yes. The Zestimate’s accuracy depends on the amount of data we have for the home. Public records can be outdated or lag behind what homeowners and real estate agents know about a property, so it’s best to update your home facts and fix any incorrect or incomplete information — this will help make your Zestimate as accurate as possible.
You can also add info about the architectural style, roof type, heat source, building amenities and more. Remember: We can’t measure what we don’t know. Providing as much information as possible about your home will yield the most accurate Zestimate.

In some parts of the country, we may have basic information on some homes — but not enough information about enough homes to compute a Zestimate.
Updates to your home facts may be factored into your home’s Zestimate, however you may not see your Zestimate change immediately. If the updates are not significant enough to impact the home's value, your Zestimate may not change. Zestimates for all homes update multiple times per week, but on rare occasions this schedule is interrupted by algorithmic changes or new analytical features.
For some off-market homes, including yours, the option to edit facts may not be available. For these homes, the home data is sourced from the last for-sale listing for the home.
