Interesting. And he had to pay $130 MILLION to Move Inc. (Realtor.com) but didn't have to admit to any wrongdoing. I don't think money is an issue for him.

Wanda,

Yes, I had heard that he bought for less than the Zestimate,   It doesn't really matter either way, it just goes to show the validity of Zestimates.  A

Just like the owner of FSBO.com using a Realtor to sell his home ---- these guys are only about the bottom line, they don't care about whether or not their product is effective.

He may have gotten a good deal or not but he got the home he wanted and sometimes you have to pay well over appraisal to get it.
