Assessed Value vs. Market Value | What is Assessed Value?

Assessed Value vs. Market Value | What is Assessed Value?

What is the difference between assessed value vs. market value?

Do you know the difference between assessed value vs. fair market value? Comment below. Let me know what other videos you might like to see!

If you think a homes assessed value and the fair market value have any correlation to one another, then you are wrong!
Often we as Realtors throw around real estate lingo. And these are two of those terms can be similar, but confusing. There is a big difference between an assessed value vs. fair market value.
Let’s start with the definition of an assessed value. It is a value put on a home, a measure for the county, in our case Alameda County, to collect an appropriate amount of taxes to give to the local cities and towns for their services. Assessed value is nothing more than a yardstick to collect taxes.

Let’s start with the definition of fair market value of a home. It is what a buyer would be willing to pay for a property on the open market with no undue influence. Don’t look for fair market values using Zillow.com to figure out what a home is worth!

Here’s one thing that I would like to point out. If you don’t agree with your homes assessment value, there is a process that you can challenge your homes assessed value. There will be some research and some paperwork involved, but if it means saving some money on your taxes, if you truly think your assessed value is wrong, do it.

When is a Good Time to Buy a House?

When is a Good Time to Buy a House?

Are you thinking about buying a home and you’re just not sure if now is the right time? I know, I get it, its so hard to know who to trust or what to believe, I feel the same way when I see the news or read the newspaper. It’s like ugggggg. It can be very scary can’t it. Well of course it is, most likely buying a home is going to be the largest investment you will ever make. Hi, my name is Casey Serafino-Lee and I am your local Realtor.

It’s a great time to buy and here’s why. *1 According to the National Association of Realtors, Interest rates are up 19.1% from this time last year, and they are anticipated to continue to go up. Also, according to the Home Price Expectation Survey, home values over the next 5 years are going to go up. Here’s an example, If you were to buy a home worth $500,000 now, in five years it would be worth almost 580,000. That’s like putting $80,000 in your pocket. So let’s ask the question again, IS IT THE RIGHT TIME TO BUY?. YES, because interest rates are rising and so are home prices.
