Market value is the most probable price in terms of money
which a property would sell for in a competitive and open
market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale.
Conditions of a fair sale:
    1. Buyer and Seller are typically motivated
    2. Both parties are well informed and are acting in their best interest(s)
    3. Reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market
    4. Payment is made in cash or its equivalent
    5. The price is unaffected by financing amounts or sales concessions
Starting with the October 1, 2023 Grand List. These
assessments will be used to calculate taxes due in July 2024

revaluation date are what determines the value of your
Most likely, yes. However, not all property values will
change at the same rate. Market value may have
increased/decreased more for some property types than for
others. One purpose of a revaluation is to make sure that
the assessed values reflect the changes that have occurred
in the real estate market since the previous revaluation
