If you are looking at sold short sales amounts, then be sure to look at houses on the market that are short sales as well. If you are looking at sold prices of foreclosures, you can only compare the price to a for sale foreclosed home. When I was looking at houses, I looked at short sales and regular selling homes and the short sales always had issues. I was speaking to the TOS tax assessor the other day and he mentioned something to me about grieving my taxes. But to be honest with you, lots of houses in the area are either short sales or foreclosures (sold for less) and my house wouldn't sell for as low as those houses so to me it wouldn't even be worth it to try to grieve them. If houses in the area that are in excellent condition were selling for those lower values in my area, then I would definitely grieve them but knowing the houses that are selling for a lot less in my area are short sales, to me it's not even worth it to try to grieve them b/c there's just no comparison. Just my opinion though.

If the Tax Assessor mentions grieving your taxes, by all means, do so!!! They don't mention that lightly
