Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Real Estate Assessment Process
The FY 2019 Real Estate Assessment Process began October 1, 2017 and ended June 30, 2018. FY 2019 starts July 1, 2018 and ends June 30, 2019.
- October 2017 - May 2018: The reassessment began with the mass appraisal process supported by a CAMA (computer assisted mass appraisal) Tax Assessment System. During this time, the Assessor collected and analyzed market data by neighborhood beginning January 1, 2017 and ending May 31, 2018. Market data included but was not limited to property listings, market sales, rental information, income and expense statements, private appraisals, and cost estimates from contractors. Based on valuation methodology (cost approach, income approach, and sales comparison approach), the Assessor reconciled a fair and equitable market value for each real property by neighborhood.
- June 2018: During this month, the Assessor performed a City-wide property valuation review. Upon completion, the Assessor then notified each real property owner of their assessed value by mailing a Notice of Real Estate Assessment on June 29, 2018. If you did not receive a Notice of Real Estate Assessment, please contact our office at 757-220-6185.
