And that value depends on "the last sale price" with the logic being: "If you bought this house for this price, than it is its true value". However, the sale prices range widely depending on many other factors (e.g., negotiation, the <a href="http://www.zillow.com/Mortgage_Rates/">mortgage rates</a> at that time, the seller's motivation to sell, etc.) other than the house's real value. So I feel this is not fair to people who take their time to get a good deal, since this estimate says if you got a good deal in a house, then you need to sell that house with a good deal. Do the <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-services-appraisal/">appraisers</a> use that value as basis of their estimates as well?<br \><br \>1 reply Sun, 08 Nov 2009 13:36:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Does-the-last-sale-price-the-basis-for-tax-and-official-market-value-affect-home-appraisal-value/295717/ 2009-11-08T13:36:00Z Correcting inaccurate sales data? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Correcting-inaccurate-sales-data/260774/ In Columbus, OH, the sales data for 799 Colony Ct.
