HI Christoper,

One reason may be that the other property is a more recent sale (8/13), while your property's last sale date is in 2006.
The assessor may have already updated the tax records using the recent sale info.
There is also a minor adjustment to the land value because their lot is larger.
My expereince is that assessed values are very, very rarely correct for valuing the market price of a home - unless there is a very, very current sale that the value is based on.

I also ran the sales for the last 6 months on Magill, Silver Spruce, and Manor hill, and found the following summary info: Single Family Sold Listings: 10 Avg. Liv.Area SqFt: 3,181.90 Avg. List$: $593,710 Avg. List$/SqFt: $188 Avg. DOM: 88.70 Avg. Sale$: $586,550 Avg. Sale$/SqFt: $186

You can always invite the assessor into your home to get a fist hand update and re-assessment.

I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)

This home is being offered from the builder for the 40B program. A certain number of the homes are priced below market value for lower income purchase.
This is conducted thru the state and involves alot of paperwork and it is there that you would see the guidlines and see if you qualify.
If I can be of any other assistance, please contact me .
Thank you
