Assessments are a snapshot in time.
The market continues to change, sometimes daily.

For Instance, you remodel or add on to your house. Maybe build a garage or pole building. Or perhaps buildings have been removed or destroyed. Another reason might be that the municipality orders a reassessment of all the property in its borders.
Assessments are only helpful to a very limited degree because they are a snapshot in time. they have some value only if you are familiar with the property or understand the market the property is located in.
