Price error

Re: 252 Elvia Ct San Rafael 94903 shows a sale price of $20K, which must be an error, since all homes in this area are in the $400K to $600K range.
  Perhaps there was an entry error leaving out a digit.  This may be skewing the price calculations for the area.

Please advise. Thank you,

There are often mistakes in public records. When a Realtor or appraiser is evaluating a home, they know to disregard these discrepancies.
Zillow valuations are not considered accurate. What appears on a Zestimate won't affect the real value of a property.

Zillow will show a distribution of equity, as the result of a divorce, as a sale. I'd bet that is what happened here. They are robots, not humans!

It sold for $589,000 in March 2011. Report it to Zillow or the county assessor.

Could be that the listing agent accidentally put in the wrong price. If that's the case. You can contact the agent and ask to edit it.

To your success,
