The Municipality of Anchorage Property Tax Assessment of Real Property is not an indicator of the Market Value of Homes. First off, Alaska is a non-disclosure state, meaning that when someone buys or sells Real Property in Alaska, it is not required of them to report or disclose how much they purchased or sold that Real Estate for.
Secondly, the Municipality Tax Assessment is usually higher or lower than the Appraised value of the property in Anchorage, Alaska. In some counties or cities, the tax assessment is based off of the actual sales price of a home. It can be a 100% of the sales price or a percentage of the actual value, for example, 90% of the actual appraised value. This is not so in the Anchorage Municipality because, as I mentioned above, buyers don't have to disclose what they paid for their homes.
When selling or buying a home, FOCUS on the Home Appraisal since this is what mortgage lenders use when they write a loan for the mortgage. Do NOT focus on the assessment that the Municipality of Anchorage has on the property, because it is not the same as market value.
Appraisers mainly focus on these things when determing the value of a home:
Condition and age of home
Number of Bedrooms
Number of Bathrooms
Total number of Rooms
An appraiser will take all of this information and use comparables in the area to make an educated analysis, which includes data, of how much a home is worth in the current Anchorage Real Estate Market.
Sellers: When trying to determine how much to sell your house for, you should request a free Comparative Market Analysis, also known as a Right Price Analysis. The analysis will show the market trends in the Municipality of Anchorage and all of the comparable Real Estate in your area. What the homes have sold for, the pended listings, and all the actives. Your Real Estate Professional will be able to determine a good price point after viewing your home and analyzing the Comparables in your Area. This service is usually provided FREE.
Some upgrades can add value to your home, although it's not always cost effective to do so. Meaning you may not fully recover the costs of the upgrades/remodel. However, these upgrades can help sell your home and shorten marketing time.
