Discrepancy in recent-sales price vs. county data

Hello.  617 Iliaina St, Kailua HI 96734.  
Zillow shows the recent sale at $1,980,000 on 9/1/2009.
City and County of Honolulu show this recorded sale on 9/1/2009 as $990,000.

It is exactly twice the listed value.   I would venture to guess there is a bug in the import of data.

Are my findings correct?

I retract previous statement.  The wrong values, although appear to have been fixed, are back at double again!

Thanks, it looks like they have fixed it Rachel.  However, the Zestimates for the neighborhood are still really far from the real price, looks like the Zestimates need to be re-run.

Additionally, it'd be nice if the graphs accurately reflected the correct moves upward/downward instead of showing the huge spike in Zestimate due to the wrongly imported data.

Can someone fix those?

Thanks.

No, I am not.  But, every recent sale in this town (Kailua, HI) appears to be doubled in sale value than actual value.  It needs to be fixed.  I just used those properties as examples, there are several more!
