Property Appraisal Schedule: 5-Year Quintile Map
As part of the appraisal process, all properties are re-valued annually based on the information on record. Properties are physically inspected and property records reviewed once every 5 years (as statutorily required). This is an ongoing process whereby 20% (referred to as quintile) of a city is inspected each year so that in a cycle of 5 years all properties have been inspected at least once. In addition to this quintile review, properties are also inspected when there is a building permit issued or at the request of the property owner. The sale of a property does not initiate a reassessment. The map at the above link depicts the residential quintile plan for the next 5 years. Affected properties will receive a mailed notification before the appraiser arrives.
