Andrew Tisellano answered:
Fair market value?
Is what buyers are willing to pay.
Assesment value is what the the town value your property so they can equally tax property owners.
the 2 are unrelated.

some people come up with the avg difference between the fair market value and the assesed value but it is meaningless when prices are increasing or decreasing.
Appraisers do not even use assesed value

Hi Kim, the rental market is quite brisk - overall uncertainty and tighter credit requirements are driving up the rental volume. You could list here on Trulia and also try Craig's list. You will want to do your due diligence in evaluating the creditworthiness of your tenant to determine ability to pay. One of the very reasons rental volume has increased is because poorer credits can not get do your homework.

Good luck to you.

There might be a county, municpal, or tenant contribution to the monthly rent. Check with Irvington and Essex County.

Use a REALTOR. He or she will be able to give you comparable values and represent you in your offer. If you need a referral to an agent, let me know. I don't personally handle Newark, but I can put you in touch with an agent who does.
