Realty Appraisal Company employs a comprehensive public relations program aimed at educating the public as to the revaluation process. Utilizing a series of direct mail contacts with property owners as well as public announcements in local newspapers and websites, the education program keeps the public well informed during each stage of the revaluation process.
The goal of the education program is threefold. First, it is meant to reduce public anxiety by dispelling myths and misconceptions regarding the revaluation process and its impact on property taxes. Second, it is designed to anticipate the public’s questions and concerns so as to reduce the strain on local tax assessor’s offices caused by large numbers of inquiries. Third, it is presented in a manner that removes any onus for the revaluation program from the local governing body.
In coordination with local officials, Realty Appraisal Company can become the public face of the revaluation program by meeting with the public, mailing educational brochures/flyers and addressing any questions or concerns. Experience shows that a revaluation program is most successful when the public is regularly updated and informed during the entire process.
Realty Appraisal Company’s goal is to execute a revaluation program that is fair, accurate and most importantly, accepted by the public.
