How is property valued?

The Assessor assigns a Real Market Value (RMV) to every property in the county. With the implementation of Measure 50 there is no longer a pre-established cycle for reappraisal. Statistical indicators from a variety of sources, including information derived from sales verifications, provide the basis for changes made to various market areas throughout the county. However, properties that have changed and new construction are appraised for the appropriate assessment year to reflect the changes.
