Home Buying in South Beach>Question Details

Mscitygirl, Home Buyer in San Francisco, CA

I saw a couple of condos in 170 King St (Unit 702 or Unit 822) sold for $3,500 or $3,000? Is this for real?

Asked by Mscitygirl, San Francisco, CA Mon Aug 31, 2009

I was at Zillow.com and Redfin.com and did a search of recently sold home around that area and this unit shows up saying it is sold for a mere $3,000 on August 4th, 2009. The source listed was public records. see link below. What's going on with this? Insight anyone? Thanks!!

I like that "garbage in, garbage out"

This is another example of garbage in garbage out. The data is so obviously wrong but not caught. Here you have a range of prices from $1,000 to $700,000. What does that do to the "Zestimate" Zillow gives.

Realtors know that public records are flawed. The clerks that do the data entry make mistakes. The mistake will be caught and corrected but in the meantime every one that looks to Zillow for values will be misled.

If you want to know the values of property iin the area work with a Realtor. Most of are nice people and would be happy to help out a Citygirl.
