Preparing for Your Informal Property Review
Preparing for your Informal Review: What You Need to Know.
The Informal Value Review process allows you the opportunity to provide additional information about the value of your property to one of our appraisers.
Before contacting us about an Informal Value Review, you will want to use some of our online resources to assess information about your home.
- Review your new tentative value from your mailer and consider if you could reasonably expect to sell your property for that amount. Is the value too high or too low?
- Review your property record through our reappraisal website to determine how your property compares to market trends, neighborhood sales, and your community.
- Review information on your home through the Greene County Property Search website to determine if the data we have on your home is accurate.
- Check with local real estate agents and websites such as Zillow to help determine what would be a reasonable asking price for your home.
Informal Review Process
If you disagree with the new tentative value that you received in your mailer, you will have an opportunity to discuss your value through an Informal Review with one of our appraisers or electronically provide us documentation for further review. The Informal review period will run through October 23, 2020.
You should be prepared to provide supporting documentation to us for us to review such as:
- A private appraisal
- Evidence of detrimental property conditions
- Any sale of a comparable property within the last two years excluding Foreclosures, Sheriff Sales or Short Sales
- A copy of a final purchase agreement or conveyance form if you recently purchased your home
- Evidence of rental amount if your property is a rental
Any information you are able to provide will assist our appraisers in determining the true value of your property. You will not receive a final determination of your value at the conclusion of your review. The Auditor's Office will review the information provided, conduct any actions if necessary, and provide the new value to the State Department of Taxation for approval. Final values will be available in December 2020 and will be used to calculate your property taxes.
