When purchasing a home there are many things that you will need to take into consideration. Most importantly, you need to know the value of the home.

And when investing in big island real estate, there are some things to know about the value of homes.

Assessed Value

The assessed value of a dwelling is first value that a home will get. This is the value that is placed on the home by the municipality once it is built. The city inspectors will come out to the home to gather several pieces of information. The details that they will get include the square footage of the home, the number of bedrooms as well as the lot size. They will utilize this information to get a value on the home.

Once the assessed value has been determined it will never change. The assessed value of the home is the number that is used to determine the amount of taxes that will be paid on the property. When you purchase big island real estate you will see that there is an assessed value on this home.

Market Value

The market value of big island real estate is determined in a much different way and will have another purpose.
