abnormal sale


A sale that does not represent a market transaction. If, for example, a house sells for $100,000 on a street where similar houses sell for $200,000, then the first home would be considered an abnormal sale. An appraiser may choose to disregard abnormal sales when selecting similar properties to compare values.
