Hi Dyzart - To answer that question, you have to put it in context. If you mean assessed value, it would mean that market value matches assessed value on average. Hard to do since the market is constantly fluctuating.

Hi Mark & Sue - I obviously don't have any information to go on but for your information I have a lender that specializes in FHA 203k Loans. Basically, you find the house you want where you want.
