The square footage of your home is one of the key variables in being able to compare homes. The Myers Team has access to the tax database, which shows us the home’s square footage. It is normally calculated for the upper levels and may show a separate amount for the lower level. Another key variable to compare is the lot size. Other variables in determining comps including garage size, upgrades such as gourmet kitchens and updated baths and amenities such as pools and decks.
Our Team also looks at the property tax assessment to determine if there might be other factors the county has used to determine your home’s relative worth. However, the county’s assessment of value is not a substitute for market value. County assessments do not reflect current market conditions, they just help us compare the value of one home in a neighborhood with another.
