Even if the condos, town homes and sfh were separated, the values would be colossally incorrect on aggregate real estate websites.THE GOOD NEWS IS the failure to separate these properties is a clearly observable red flag, for those who are paying attention, that what appears as facts on these sites are statistical fabrications that the consumer will take comfort in, believing they are doing meaningful research. It is a travesty.
Best of success,

Trulia is a nice tool for us to meet but not for estimates. no professional would ever use Trulia or Zillow for an estimate.
For true estimates we must go to the professionals. Banks use an Appraiser, buyers and sellers use an Realtor.
Professionals do not mix types of homes when doing an estimate. Some townhomes are more expensive than a single family home. sometime we have 2 homes right next to each other one being a Cape and the other a colonial and we can not use them as comparable.
Call a local agent and they would be happy to give you a free estimation of your home even if you are not ready to sell or buy
In the MLS system all condo's and town homes are listed under the appropriate headings..Also in print advertising....There can be in realtor.com a misprint....An appraiser comps apples to apples and oranges to oranges, so this shoukd not be a problem for you....Please let me know which you are referring to so I can be of further help to you..
Have a good day
