Why do similar houses in different neighborhoods have different assessments?

These houses may be valued differently because their actual market values may vary. Location plays an important part in establishing market value. General location, distance from schools, distance from commercial facilities, quality of surrounding properties and neighborhood amenities are examples of factors that could cause a purchaser to pay more for a home in a specific neighborhood than in another.
