Our Promise to You
Reappraisal is always a challenge, because the goal is to appraise tens of thousands of properties all at one time, and in a way that is fair and equitable to all property owners. We strive to follow established industry standards for mass appraisal; however, we recognize that there will be situations where the mass appraisal approach may produce an estimate of value that seems somewhat high or low for an individual property. We are committed to working with all property owners to ensure that every property is appraised at a reasonable estimate of its market value.
