EXTERIOR REVALUATION TO BE CONDUCTED IN 2022
The City’s Assessor, Associated Appraisal Consultants, will be conducting a revaluation of all properties in 2022 for the purpose of updating all assessed values to reflect current market conditions. The last time the City’s assessments were updated to market value was in 2018. Based on the assessor’s latest estimates, the City’s assessment level is approximately 25% below recent sale prices.
