What is market value?
Market value is defined as the amount a typical, well-informed purchaser would be willing to pay for a property. The seller and buyer must be unrelated. The seller must be willing but not under pressure to sell, and the buyer must be willing but not under any obligation to buy. The property must be on the market for a reasonable length of time, the payment must be in cash or its equivalent, and the financing must be typical for that type of property. If all of these conditions are met, this would be an example of market value or an armís-length sale.
