Market value is what the county says the home is worth based on sales in the area.
Assessed value is what the county says you will pay taxes on.

The seller has the right to accept, reject, or counter your offer based on all the terms presented, not just the sale price.

I hope we have seen the low price in some buildings already. For example San Carlos sold for much lower 6 months ago than more recently. You can still find buildings that haven't had sales in a long time and when you look at the pricing there it is just not market price. We are finding many listings getting multiple offers. As mortgages get even harder to come by and with more notices of default still being sent out there may still be some lower pricing to come this fall. I would hope that would be the last price drop if we do in fact see another price drop then. There are more cash buyers than ever before. Paying cash is best and will definately help you to cash flow mortgages are difficult but not impossible. ... more

Many sellers discover that low ball offers start coming out of the woodwork late in the fall, so they pull off for the winter and hope that prices will rise again. ... more
