How did the Zestimate and others do for the Landfall real estate?

That home had a zestimate of $3,900,000 and yet it sold for just $2,500,000.  That is off by 35%.  Do you want to base your buying–or listing decisions for that matter–of a zestimate or other automated valuation model?  Here’s another from Homes.com and it gave the home a $4,167,000 estimate of value.  I’m afraid to calculate how far that is off.

Guess Who Knows Landfall market prices best?

Your local Landfall real estate agent in Wilmington NC  is best for assessing market values.  Some of it is data analysis, but a significant component is also instincts that come from literally “feeling” the marketplace day in day out on the front lines of negotiating home prices.  I did  a video blog on that subject here:
