Thank you SoCal for the county link.@elisa, I think I'm going to question the assertion that "Most of the houses I look at on here are rated 6, which doesn't sound that great either."@droopyd, (which is why I'm questioning elisa's assertion) It is rarely, if ever, referred to in the market place, because, unless you ask the county assessor to visit the subject property, it hasn't been verified. Try contesting your property taxes and asking the assessor to confirm that yours is a grade 9, not a grade 10. The assessor may have made a visit if the subject was radically remodeled, but that is the exception.County grades have very little to contribute except in the calculation of property tax. Having a lower grade lessens what you pay in taxes. Very few people are interested in contesting it.Yes, there are many times when a grade 4 is appropriate; for a developer, remodeler or homebuyer who understands the risks and has available cash for improvements.A grade 6 is affordable for many until we start adding some jobs to the market. It isn't my experience as the average in Seattle. Grade 7 is described as Average for a reason.
