When does Zillow gather/publish tax assessment data? The City of Richmond, VA is not current.

Answer

I'm not sure when Zillow will upload the new tax assessments.  However, it is important to that tax assessments can be different than appraised value.  Different methodolgies are used in the calculation.  In addition the tax assessment is used to establish real estate taxes paid by ahomeowner to the city while appraised value is an opinon of value made by an appraiser.  This is particularly important when you have homes on the same block that are distinctly different.  For example, in the City of Richmond, you could have a 1500 sq ft cape code in "originial" condition next to a 2500 brick colonial that has been renovated. The tax assessor may not be able to easily see the difference while an appraiser will use recent comparables with similar features (among other criteria).

current value of residence

Answer

I would consult a Realtor to help determine market value.  They have the most accurate data and they have the experience of being INSIDE comparable homes as well and really knowing the neighbrohood.  Tax records/tax assessments are NOT a good single source and this is where data from zillow and trulia are often pulled.  An appraiser who is familiar with your particular neighborhood is also a good option.

Radon found in house, how does this affect resale.

Answer

I would certainly recommend a post radon test to ensure the mitigation was successful. I would not expect any issues with resale as long as the system is in working order.  Some may think of it as a positive particularly in the Richmond area where radon can be an issue.
