Where is your mansions sales data researched from?
I use our California Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS) and public records to determine values. I don’t use online magazines like Zillow, Trulia or even Realtor.com to determine value. Real estate professionals and appraisers don’t go to those sites for market values and neither should you. They are just an estimate.
