Pricing is just an estimation
The stock market provides buyers and sellers real-time access to market prices. In contrast, real estate pricing is quite cryptic and is mainly based on estimations. True, there are factors that might help you evaluate a house’s value, but, at the end of the day, its real value is what you get for it. Until you actually put it up for sale, it might be just and your best guesses as to what its price should be.
Yes, you could use online real estate services providers like Zillow to make an idea of home prices in your area, but the real-life sale price can be sharply higher or lower than the “current market pricing”, which makes real estate investment all the more complicated and questionable.
