How has the COVID-19 environment affected the valuation process?

The COVID 19 pandemic has certainly caused our office to make modifications in how we perform our day-to-day functions to fulfill the legal requirement to assess property at market value.   As such, we have limited personal contact as much as possible while conducting our property reviews, and are utilizing telephone, email, direct mailings, and video conferencing in lieu of face-to-face meetings.

Our team has worked to specifically monitor the trends in sale prices to ensure assessments reflect the current market conditions.  While the economic effect of the pandemic has proven to affect areas of the residential and commercial market differently, we encourage you to submit any information that helps demonstrate the current market value of your property.
