Does your Tax assessment tell you what your house is worth in todays market?
The quick answer is NO, but let me explain this bit further. The market value of your home today is based on calculations done today, not based on the market values at last years tax cut off day. On average the market evaluations real estate agents are doing now will be higher than your local tax assessment for 2010, at least in the City of Airdrie. Now there are a few exceptions such as the community of Reunion that saw a significant increase due to (1 comments)
Used to say," its good to be the First Born, The second wife, and the Third listing agent!" In this market, I have found that it is very true! Especially when the seller is insistant on trying a price higher than I recommend.
Another thing I have found is that if the seller starts over what you recommend, the higher over they go, the longer it will take, AND most likely it will sell UNDER what you recommend.... Have you had this experience? If you like this post why (6 comments)

After several years of record activity in the Real Estate, the market has definitely shifted in favour of buyers. Instead of having to compete for whatever properties are available, buyers now have the luxury of increased selection and much more relaxed shopping experience. Buyers can actually take a few days to consider a property before making their offer and the property will likely still be available. The Calgary and Airdrie real estate markets now offer an excellent selection of well priced homes.
Informed buyers and informed sellers look at the facts
The facts right now indicate the real estate resale market is starting to stabilize. Sales activity in September was slightly under the same month last year. In Calgary in September, there were 2,006 sales at an average price of $390,599. That is a decrease of six per cent from September 2007. Canadian home sellers are under no financial duress to sell, and a number may decide to take their home off the market should it remain unsold when the listing expires.
