What is Market Value?

According to North Carolina General Statute 105-283, Market Value is defined as "the price estimated in terms of money at which the property would change hands between a willing and financially able buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell." The Gaston county assessor’s office analyzes the local real estate market and uses that information to develop our estimates of market value.
