It is necessary for Associated Appraisal to perform an interior and exterior review of all homes, apartments and businesses. The Assessor will conduct a brief interior walk-through to review the features, conditions and quality of each residence or structure. The Assessor will be taking exterior photos of the property; no interior photos will be taken.
All Assessors will be carrying a letter of introduction provided by City Clerk/Treasurer Michelle Ebbert. The letter will be on city letterhead and laminated. Additionally, they will be in red vehicles displaying the Associated Appraisal company name. If no one is home upon their visit, they will leave a door hanger requesting you contact the company to schedule your appointment.
Notice of Assessments will be mailed when the property reviews are complete and an assessment is determined for each property. Property owners will have an opportunity to discuss the assessed values with an Associated Appraisal representative at the Open Book session. After the Open Book session, property owners have the opportunity to appeal an assessment to the Board of Review. The Notice of Assessment will contain the Open Book and Board of Review dates.
What is a revaluation?Municipalities are required to keep properties in compliance of full value at least once in every five year period. The city is conducting a revaluation of the 2017 assessment roll. Associated Appraisal will be periodically conducting inspections on properties until the entire roll is completed.
