There are two good methods of determining this. First, compare your properties to similar properties that sold in the previous year. Your value should be in line with these sales prices. Second, if no recent sales are available, compare your assessment to other similar properties in your area using the Street Listing of Values available in the Assessor’s Office. Your value should be in line with these similar properties. Remember, very few properties are exactly alike. Your value should be comparable, but it seldom will be exactly the same as what seems to be similar property.
