A market area is a geographic area or political jurisdiction where properties similar to the subject property compete with it for potential buyers or users. It's the area where people might look for properties that are similar to the one they want to buy or use.
For example, if you're looking to buy a house in a particular neighborhood, the market area might include all the other houses in that same neighborhood that are similar in size, price, and features. The market area might also include nearby neighborhoods with similar types of homes and amenities.
