Top Answer (43% of 183 votes): Most of the time.

Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: According to the last lecture I attended by the Collier County Property Appraisers office, the age of the home, value of the land, years the home was owned by the same owner, the SAVE OUR HOMES Tax credit among other things really effect the assessed value of the home. This is decided by the Property Appraisers Office and if you do not agree with the tax, it can be challenged.

Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: Assessed Value is based on the last selling price of the property and increases by only 2% per year. In a hot market like the one we have now, Assessed Value is lower than current value due to the sharp increase in prices.
Wall Street Appraisal
Answer: Some of the time
Explanation: Assessed valuations and their yearly valuation are driven by the direct demand of the numbers of buyers looking for them. Also the number and amounts of improvements made upon the property. In a seller's market with newer construction homes with low inventories...the assessed values can raise to a level of market valuation. In a buyer's market with a larger inventory of houses available...the assessed valuation can be somewhat less than market value.
eXp Realty/The Escalante Group
Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: In California when a property sells it it assessed at its sale value. After the most recent sale the assessed value is determined by a percentage prescribed by Proposition 13 and most likely will not be what a current owner may receive in a sale. However once a current owner sales the property it would be assessed at that amount.

Explanation: Both Illinois and Wisconsin use fair cash value to set assessments. In Illinois, 35 ILCS 200/1-50 defines "Fair cash value" as: the amount for which a property can be sold in the due course of business and trade, not under duress, between a willing buyer and a willing seller.
Fast Appraisals
Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: Your assessed value in the State of California cannot be raised more than 2% per annum from your original purchase price, so most the time your assessed value is less than the sales value, however, there are times when the market drops and as we saw in 2009 and 2010, assessed values can be more than the sales value of a home. If you plan on staying in the home there is a way to appeal the value of the home with the Property Tax Assessor. If you need more details on how, please reach out to me. The cost to appeal to the Tax Assessor is free.

Bay Home Relief - House Buyers
Answer: Most of the time
Explanation: The majority of the time the assessed value is less than the sale value of your home. The assessed value can be the same amount as the state equalized value (SEV), but in some instances, such as when the home has not changed ownership for a long period of time, the assessed value is less then the SEV. The general rule of thumb is multiplying the SEV times two to get an estimated value of your home. Again there are several other factors that need to be considered such as the condition of your home and the homes comparable to yours that have recently sold.

Real World Appraisal
Answer: Some of the time
Explanation: You pay taxes based off of the sales price of your home. When home prices were inflated you can ask the tax accessor for a re-evaluation of your home value to pay a lower tax rate. This is only good for a year and must be done every year or your taxes will be estimated on your home price vs. current market value.

RLN Properties LLC
Answer: Never
Explanation: The assessed value of your real estate is set using what is called a "mass appraisal" process. This is entirely different than a determination of "market value," which is what most people who are buying and selling property are interested in knowing. The tax valuation process is often done once every so many years and then remains a static number (some states adjust the tax value after a sale to the actual sale price.) In other words, an assessed tax value could be less than, equal to, of more than the real "market value" of a property.
