General Comment on Market Value Definition
Market Value Appraisals are distinct from appraisals using other types of value
"Market Value* means the most probable price which a property should bring in a competitive and open market under all conditions requisite to a fair sale, the buyer and seller each acting prudently and knowledgeably, and assuming the price is not affected by undue stimulus.  Implicit in this definition is the comsummation of a sale as of a specified date and the passing of title from seller to buyer under conditions whereby:
1. buyer and seller are typically motivated;
2. both parties are well informed or well advised and acting in what they consider their own best interests;
3. a reasonable time is allowed for exposure to the market;
4. payment is made in terms of cash in U.S. dollars or in term of financial arrangements comparable thereto; and
5. the price represents the normal consideration for the property sold un affected by special or creative financing or sales concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale."
*This example definition is from regulation published by federal regulatory agencies pursuant to Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) of 1989 between July 5, 1990, and August 24, 1990, by the Federal Reserve System (FRS), National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), and the Office of Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).  This definition is also referenced in regulations jointly published by the OCC, OTS, FRS, and FDIC on June 7, 1994 and in the Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines, dated October 27, 1004
