Tax Assessor

I know I need eventually to get proper comps, but I wanted to know how accurate is the value the local tax assessor puts on a property.
Zillow is telling me that the property value according to the tax assessor is $93,000. I think it’s more like $120,000.

Tax assessed value and fair market value are rarely one and the same. Assessments vary by county, some shoot for 100% of fmv while others are satisfied with 25%-75%. You have to understand the local guidelines and adjust your interpretation of those numbers accordingly.

They can be close or they can be way off. Find a good realtor to put on your team. Study the neighborhoods you want to work in.
