Our Real Estimate™ is an estimate of the current market value of a home. To arrive at an estimate, the most recent certified appraisal is marked to market by considering when the most recent certified appraisal was performed and the weighted sale-price(SP)-vs-appraised-value(AV) ratios of all subsequently sold, comparable properties within the same zip code.
The formula for the estimate follows the sales comparison (market) approach which is an approach based on the principles of supply and demand (principle of change) and the principle of substitution. The principle of substitution assumes that a prudent person will pay no more for a property than it would cost to purchase a comparable substitute property. A local real estate expert should be consulted to refine the Real Estimate as s/he will consider factors that are impossible to capture in a computer algorithm.
The certified market value of 154 Spruce Street on January 1, 2021 was $401,800. Subsequently, a total of 122 comparable properties have been sold. The weighted SP/AV ratio of those properties is 1.21. Multiplying the most recent certified appraised value of $401,800 by the weighted SP/AV ratio of properties sold subsequent to the most recent certified appraisal yields a Real Estimate of $486,399.
The most recent certified appraisal estimated that the value of the building was 63% of the total value of the entire property and that the land was worth 37%. If we assume the same ratio of the value of the building and land to the total value of the property, the current estimated value of the building is $308,085 and the value of the land is estimated at $178,314.
Similarly, we estimate that the current Owners’ Equivalent Rent (OER) is $2,229 per month. Owners’ equivalent rent (OER) is the amount of rent that would need to be paid to substitute a currently owned house as a rental property. This value is also referred to as rental equivalent. It is a commonly cited measure that provides a gauge for changes in real estate market values.
We have used an algorithm that applies an OER factor of between 4 and 7.5% of the current market value of a property, depending on the value of the property, to arrive at the OER. An OER answers the question, "If someone were to rent your home today, how much would it rent for monthly, unfurnished and without utilities?" A local real estate expert should be consulted to refine the OER.
Assessors must value all real and personal property within the community to their full and fair cash value. Mass appraisal is the process used by every Massachusetts city and town to create the property appraisal. It differs from the more well-known “bank” or fee appraisal. Although the appraisal concepts are the same and the results similar, the process is different. No particular sale or group of sales is used to determine the value of a property, but all of a certain calendar year’s sales are included in the analysis that set the parameters for the next fiscal year.
The current fiscal year is 2022 and the assessed values are of January 1, 2021.
The current certified assessed value of the 154 Spruce Street is as follows. The total value is $401,800. The building, if any, is valued at $254,500. The land is valued as $147,300.

The concerned Registry of Deeds is responsible for recording all real estate transactions and is the source of the following information on sold properties. The table below lists key information about the 10 most recent Arm’s Length Sales in proximity to 154 Spruce Street.
In real estate, an arm's length transaction is when the buyer and seller each act in their own self-interest to try to get the best deal they can. In most sales, a seller is trying to make a large profit, while the buyer is trying to pay the least amount of money possible. To resolve this discrepancy, both sides agree to meet in the middle and sell the home for its fair market value. In fact, this is how most real estate transactions play out.

The average commute time to work in the U.S. is 25.4 minutes, according to the Census Bureau. Over 10 million Americans travel more than an hour each way to work.
As the minutes add up, so do travel costs and indirectly the value of a home. According to research by Lifehacker, each mile you live from work adds $795 per year to your commuting costs. So, for example, a 30-minute commute saves the homeowner a whopping $23,850 annually comparted to a 1-hour commute.
