Replacement cost value is not a good indicator of current market value. For example, suppose you paid $500,000 for your home five years ago and subsequently invested $100,000 for a new kitchen. You can only sell it for $600,000 if the current market will bear that price. If similar homes are selling for $550,000, this is what your home is worth.
