Tax assessments rarely equate to market value, at least here in Maryland!

Agents like myself are generally willing to consult with you regarding market conditions and values; there is never any obligation. We are the local economists, and we often know what's going on "behind the scenes" - there is much more than meets the eye.

Due to current conditions, the "actives" need to be considered - not just solds. What has sold in the last 90 days? What failed to sell? An agent can explain this further.
Good luck!

There is no definite percentage associated with this assertion. However, today's sellers are painfully aware it is unlikely they will get their asking price and do tend to inflate the asking price.

Agents are now working hard to convince sellers of the importance of not doing this and listing the home accurately with regards to the current market value.

The best thing to do is use the recently sold comps to arrive at a reasonable offer price.

Good luck
