Please give examples of documentation I need to support my opinion of value.

Examples of documentation include the following:

  • A full appraisal of your property
  • Interior/exterior photos of your property
  • Your homeowner’s or commercial property owner’s insurance policy
  • Your listing contract if your property is currently for sale
  • Estimates of repairs
  • Original construction costs or costs of additions or improvements to your property
  • Documentation of recent comparable sales (not assessments) that are similar to your property in size, condition, location and other characteristics (sales should be within the last 2 years of the current assessment date)
  • Documentation of land characteristics that support floodplain, environmental contamination, deed restrictions, easements, etc.
  • Lease contracts for rental properties
  • Income and expense statements for the last 3 complete calendar years for commercial properties
