Real Estate Appraisals
Keith Faulkner, Chief Appraiser
It is the job of the Appraisal Department to appraise all real property in the county at fair market value. We are also required by law to reappraise real property at least once every eight years.
Real Property includes land and improvements on the land such as: houses, double-wide mobile homes(double-wide mobile homes are listed as real estate if it is located on the homeowners land), carports, garages, sheds, poultry houses, swine houses, swimming pools, etc.
Real property is automatically listed every year. Therefore, a listing form will not be mailed annually. However, it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify the Assessors Office of any changes to real property.
