In most areas, including Walpole, the tax assessment for a home does not tend to be a good indicator of selling price. If you were to look at the most recent 50 sales in Walpole right now, you'd see that some are selling quite a bit above assessment, while a few are listed and sold below. The real indicator for selling price will be the other recent sales in the same neighborhood ('comps') and the condition of the home itself. Pricing changes so frequently that you have to be looking at comparable properties every day to stay on top of it. I live in Walpole, myself. If you're thinking of selling or buying, give me a call!
