2021 County Wide Reappraisal
Revaluation or Reappraisal (2021)

The 2021 Property Values records are available for public inspection. Ohio Law requires all properties to be appraised once every six years in order for the taxes to be shared fairly and equitably among all citizens. Your property values are on the Valuation Tab.

After tax bills have been mailed, the reappraisal team that performed this task will be available for informal reviews, at the County Auditor’s Office.  Informal complaints will be considered and adjustments made, if warranted.  

If after an informal review, you believe the value we have for your property is inaccurate you can file a complaint with the Board of Revision. Based on the evidence presented, the Board can raise or lower a value or leave it unchanged.

Normally you could just come into the office and meet with the appraiser.  However, due to the Covid-19 protocols in place, you must submit a request  for an informal review in order to receive a phone call or in-person appointment time with the Appraisal Team or Auditor staff.

The appraisal team will be available for certain days between January 10, 2022 through February 25, 2022 for informal reviews. 

Is Your Real Estate Property Value Accurate?

Some of the questions to consider are:

  • Would you sell your home for the current appraised value of the property?
  • Did we miss something when your home was reviewed that might change your valuation?

Revaluation or reappraisal is an update of all real property assessments in the county. It involves the physical visitation to each parcel of real property located with the county and gathering of data so that an estimate of market value can be made. This process was completed by a professional reappraisal company that the County Auditor oversees. The revaluation's goal is equalizing property values and adjusting property values to meet current market conditions.

Market value, or true value, is defined in the Ohio Administrative Code 5703-25-05 (A) (1) as: The fair market value or current market value of property.... is the price at which property should change hands on the open market between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or to sell and both having a knowledge of all the relevant facts.

After the County Auditor has been ordered by the Ohio Tax Commissioner (through the Division of Tax Equalization) to perform a Revaluation, several kinds of statistical analysis of property values in the county are performed. The first step in the process is analyzing the arms-length sales that have taken place in the county during the last three years. This sales analysis illustrates the average percentage by which values in the county have increased or decreased during that period. Once the original sales analysis is complete, the County Auditor then runs statistical reports for the various neighborhoods throughout the county. The results indicate the neighborhoods in which values are increasing or decreasing at either a faster or slower rate than is average for the county.
