Their synopsis of our property is wrong -- they have us in a 4BR (we're officially a 2BR) house that's larger than reality by about 40%.

They've got us correct, though the aerial photo doesn't show the garage we built 2 years ago. The "zestimate" is our purchase price, no big surprise there. As you say, the range is ridiculously wide, and they certainly haven't updated it using our most recent tax assessment.

The most interesting thing about the site is seeing real estate values in map form. The prices are more uniform that I expected, given the disparity in actual house sizes. Of course, since the dollar values are somewhat suspect, I'm not sure it's of any real value.
