The Difference Between Real Estate Assessed Value vs Fair Market Value
There is a distinct difference between a homes fair market value and it's assessed value. Very rarely is there a correlation between these two figures!

Unfortunately the general public can be misled by things that some real estate agents say both in person and in advertisements that throw people off.

Here is an example of something you may see in the multiple listing service or advertising on some website:

“Come see this bargain home that is priced $100,000 less than the assessed value”.

What this immediately tells me is the Realtor either is not educated on property valuation or they believe there will be someone ignorant enough to think the home is the bargain of the century.

Someone that knows better will be realizing the property has been over assessed by the town or city and the seller has been paying too much taxes!

Folks there is a huge difference between real estate assessed value and fair market value. In the article you will see a description of fair market value, appraised value and assessed value. I will take you through what each of these means in detail.

How To Use Pinterest & Google Plus To Rock Your Online Visibility
Most people who are on Google Plus daily understand the dynamics well enough to know just how good it is for the online exposure of your business!

Did you know that you can take your social media efforts up a notch by using both Google Plus and Pinterest together. Some like to call it wine and cheese others peanut butter and jelly but the point is these two platforms can work remarkable well in unison with one another.

My business is Real Estate so the article is written to speak to a Real Estate audience however the tips and guidance work for every business that wants to grow their online exposure.

Happily relocated to the year round warmer weather and beautiful barrier island of Sunset Beach from the New York area in 2003.
