Predicting the market value of a residential property accurately without inspection by professional valuer could be beneficial for vary of organization and people. Building an Automated Valuation Model could be beneficial if it will be accurate adequately. This paper examined 47 machine learning models (linear and non-linear). These models are fitted on 1967 records of units from 19 suburbs of Sydney, Australia. The main aim of this paper is to compare the performance of these techniques using this data set and investigate the effect of spatial information on valuation accuracy. The results demonstrated that tree models named eXtreme Gradient Boosting Linear, eXtreme Gradient Boosting Tree and Random Forest respectively have best performance among other techniques and spatial information such drive distance and duration to CBD increase the predictive model performance significantly.
