KBB vs Edmunds

I'm leisurely looking at the used EV market again, which has me wondering why Edmunds always shows a much lower private party value for any given vehicle (that I've looked up)? KBB says a 2017 Prius Prime Plus with 39k miles is $20k private party, and Edmunds says it's worth $16k.

While I'm at it, anyone else notice the KBB site has been circling the drain for a while now? It spikes my new gen 10 Intel i5 processor while presenting the least professional web page I've seen, and my cooling fan has to kick on just to display that hot garbage. It's almost not usable.

I use car guru's price trends to track which direction the market is headed, but I don't really have any other sources for private party valuations than Edmunds and KBB.

Of course, everyone relies on KBB, so I guess it's probably more accurate than Edmunds.
