It depends on where you are getting this question. Usually Market value refers to the price that a seller of real property can expect to receive from a buyer in a fair and open negotiation. What it "Last sold for" would be a assessed value at the time of purchase but would have nothing to due with today. Hope this Helps

On the appraiser's site,, " just value " is shown. This is the equivalent of market value which is the value a property would sell for in an arm's length transaction. However for 2011 that number is an estimate and is not definitively set until June. Further down the page, past transactions are shown. Some of these deals are qualifying, shown with a "Q" meaning that deal is considered to be at arm's length and is used to determine just value.

It depends on the property tax structure in your State. In our community the market value is usually about 75% of what the actual sales value would be for the property in the market of the day. Right now that is not really true because tax values were raised during the height of the market and have not been re-adjusted based on the price decline of the past few years.

Market value is the most probable price property would bring in an arm's length transcations (i.e. a transaction based on fair conditions,not involved relatives or otherwised biased parties) under normal condtions on the open market. Market price-is what a property sells for-its sales price.

Hi Charlene:
Market value is based on the assessed value of that property in the market when the taxes are being assessed. If you buy a property this year, you will continue to have the property taxed at the current owners tax rate and then next year it would convert to be about 2.2% of the market value.
If it will be a primary residence, then $50,000 would be deducted before you are taxed. If you currently own a primary home and are moving to another primary home, you would be wise to use the portability transfer also, which saves you a lot in taxes.
I hope I have assisted a little. Please contact me if you are not working with another Realtor and I can assist you with anything related to Real Estate.
