NEW!NEIGHBORHOOD REVIEW STATUS
A new web application provides citizens with up-to-date progress in the ongoing Revaluation Review. You can now see easily the effect the review is having on your own neighborhood, current values of the properties, and comparable sales.
Revaluation is the process of reappraising all properties within the county for tax assessment purposes. It is required at least once every eight years by North Carolina statute. The process has two objectives: value properties at current market prices, and equitably distribute the cost of local government among the property owners.
Reviewing Your Property Value
The following factors are considered when determining your property’s value:
- Property Characteristics
- Neighborhood Characteristics
- Market Characteristics
- Property Anomalies
