Will my new assessment be exactly the same as my recent purchase price?

Probably not. All residential home sales between April 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019 will be used to determine new assessments. Your purchase price is one sale out of hundreds that will be used in the analysis. Your assessment will reflect the most probable sale price you would expect to receive. Where comparable sales are rare or non-existent in your neighborhood, sales from similar areas or property types in the City will be used to determine value.
