The market determines the "value" of the home. You and your agent determine the "asking price". Buyers determine value by comparison shopping.

They have different reasons for the values. The cities are not doing appraisals and are creating assessed values for taxation purposes. These valuations are not reliable for buying or selling.
Sites like Trulia, Zillow and others offer Estimated values based on more up to date sales and public information. These values are interesting, but again, they are not reliable for decision making. No one from any website has toured your home, seen your updates or the need for some.
