The deed should have the documentary transfer tax amount listed on the first page of the recorded Grant Deed. If the transfer tax paid was $363.00 as an example, then you divide 363 by 1.1% to compute the purchase price on the home. In this example $363.00 divided by 1.1% is $330,000. I believe you may need to add a an extra zero to your answer to arrive at the correct value.
Just look for the transfer tax amount that was paid and use that number for your calculation. Good luck!
