Zestimate


The zestimate sensor allows one to track the Zestimate® value of properties using the Zillow API. According to Zillow’s website, a Zestimate® home valuation is Zillow’s estimated market value. It is not an appraisal. Use it as a starting point to determine a home’s value. The Zestimate® is provided by Zillow, a website primarily for listing homes to buy/sell/rent in the United States.

This component adds one entity per zpid specified, named sensor.zestimate with numbers appended if you choose to track more than one Zestimate.
