First of all assessed values have NOTHING to do with what the house should sell for. It could be a benchmark to go by, but it has nothing to do with it's sale value. Here, in NC, the assessed values change between 4-8 years and remain the same for years. I am not sure what Florida does, but home sale prices can be over, at or under the assessed value which is set to tax similar homes similarly to each other.

For more information, talk to a Realtor.

Good luck and may God bless
