What is "Market Value"?

"Market Value" is the cost of the project if you hired someone to complete the work. For the purpose of calculating Building Permit fees, it includes labor, materials and profit. Land or real estate value is not included. The Building Department has per square foot costs that will be used as a minimum. Once the "Market Value" is determined, the permit fee can be calculated.
