So the tricky part is coming up with a FMV. That's quite a gray area, not set in stone. Realtors can't even really come up with the value of a house in current time, using comps, let a lone from 3 years ago.
It would be typical of them to say a range like, $130K to $170K but for tax purposes even $10K is a BIG difference. No one can estimate the FMV of a house that closely.
