Assessed values are for taxation purposes only.....
Market value and what a buyer will offer and a seller will accept is based on the market conditions at that time, and what the buyer is ready and willing to pay and what the seller is ready and willing to accept.
If you are working with a good Realtor he or she will negotiate the terms in your very best interest and
give you a lot of useful area information so that you yourself will become a well educated buyer.
Assessed value can be very misleading. Most people think this number is an accurate representation of the current worth of the home. Generally speaking, the assessed value is a number that is associated with an area's taxation policy.
In our location assessed value has nothing to do with the current value of the home. Thus, it should not be a consideration when contemplating an offer amount. A more important factor is the sale prices for similar recently sold homes in this general location.
