Is your home's tax-assessed value accurate?

Tax-assessed home value accuracy

According to the Minnesota Department of Revenue, your recent tax-assessed value was determined from nearby home sales and market stats gathered between September 2012 and October 2013.

Accuracy matters

Many areas have seen significant gains in home prices since that time span, meaning assessed values could be lower than the current market values.

For example, the current median home price in southwest Minneapolis is $358,000. Meanwhile, the median home prices in this area ranged from $250,000 to $333,110 during the months the 2014 tax assessment data was collected. (Source: Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS®)

That’s a difference of $108,000 from the lowest home prices assessed (in February 2013) and the current median market prices in southwest Minneapolis.
