What does the assessor do with the information?
The County Assessor has the complex job of annually determining the fair market value of all the property within the county. To accomplish this, sales information for an area is analyzed to develop adjustments to bring the property to current market value. Through the use of computer programs, information gained from properties that have sold can be used on properties not sold to achieve a fair market value for all properties. Because the sales information is crucial to this analysis, the assessor may need to verify the information with one or more of the parties to the transaction. This may be done by phone, mail or in person.
