How is my assessed value determined?

The assessed values of residential homes are primarily determined using sale prices of comparable homes in the area.  Commercial properties are valued using comparable sales, but also rely on more specific information, like rental rates, vacancy rates, or market capitalization, which are necessary to perform an income approach to estimate market value.  Agricultural or horticultural land valuation is conducted using sales of agricultural or horticultural land and determining market value per acre based on the use of the land in primarily irrigated, dryland, or grassland uses.
