Automated Valuation Services: A case study for Aberdeen in Scotland

Rainer Schulz and Martin Wersing ()

Journal of Property Research, 2021, vol. 38, issue 2, 154-172

Abstract: Automated valuation services (AVSs) offered by listings platforms predict market values based on property characteristics supplied by users. We investigate the implementation of such a service for the City of Aberdeen. We fit different market value models with machine learning methods and assess them in a rolling windows procedure that mimics an AVS setting. We also investigate the ease and robustness with which the models can be implemented. We discuss how prediction uncertainty can be measured and reported to users. If implemented in the future, such a service has the potential to improve the transparency of the local housing market.
