METHODOLOGY ATTOM Data Solutions analyzed 28,351,466 single-family home and condo sales between 2011 and 2018, comparing median prices for those homes — based on recorded sales deed data — with the estimated market value of those homes in the month they were sold — based on an automated valuation model (AVM) that takes into account recent, nearby sales of similar homes. The seller premium was the percentage the median sale price was above (or below) the estimated market value at time of sale.
