Notices of assessed value are being sent to 127,776 property owners to provide updated market values related to new construction, changes to property characteristics, or changes due to current market conditions.?“Our team of reappraisal professionals has been working diligently to produce fair and impartial values for all property owners in Buncombe County,” says Property Assessor Keith Miller. “We want to assure our residents that the overall goal is to increase equity and fairness by making assessments more uniform across the County.”
North Carolina General Statute (NCGS) 105-286 specifically requires counties to reappraise all real property at least once every eight years. Real Property is considered land, buildings, structures, and improvements. NCGS 105-286 also authorizes counties to reappraise real property more frequently than every eight years. In order to maintain current values, Buncombe County attempts to reappraise all real property on a four-year schedule. The previous reappraisal occurred in 2017.
Feb. 1, 2021, is also the start of the informal appeal process. Property owners who wish to seek further information concerning their property value or any other real property assessment questions are encouraged to visit buncombecounty.org/MyValue2021.
