Difference Between Fair Market Value, Appraised Value, and Assessed Value. Here’s an explanation:

  • A fair market value is a subjective estimate of what a willing buyer would pay a willing seller for a property. While an estimate of fair market value can be determined by a realtor.
  • A home’s appraised value is determined by a licensed, professional appraiser. A disinterested third party who conducts a thorough investigation of the property, the neighborhood market conditions, and recent comparable sales in the area to determine the current value.
  • The assessed value is a dollar value used by your local government to calculate property taxes. The local assessor determines this value after taking comparable sales and property inspections into consideration. In general, the assessed value tends to be lower than both the appraised and fair market value of a property.
