I've got a piece of property that went from $50,500 to $184,400 with this revaluation. I swear on my left knee cap that I couldn't even get the prior tax value for this house if I tried to sell it and now the county is saying its worth almost four times that?!?!?!?

Its apparent that someone is seriously out of touch and most likely just came up with these numbers out of thin air.

The tax office is going to be catching some serious heat on this.

I hope everyone in the county appeals their values.

I can only imagine the jaw dropping moment of silence when you opened that envelope ...

I think I would've lost my voice for a moment, had to grab the counter to catch my balance, and swallow hard! WOW!

Probably some appraiser that moved down here from NJ...

So far I've got 6 revaluations.

- $50500 to $184400
- $52400 to $162000
- $67000 to $74600 (this one isn't awful, more like I was expecting)
- $535100 to $621800
- $57400 to $164900
- $46500 to $93500

All but the 621k and 74600 are on the same street, and its not in a quiet neighborhood or anything like that.

Naah, not quite! You'd have to add an extra "0" onto Spanky's new revaluation numbers and triple the new assessed per $100 rate when it comes out in June. Only then, would you be in the ballpark!

It's all about location folks. I have a website that isn't quite ready but will give prediction information based on my own numbers. I'm reeling for the opposite reason. Mine went from $128K to $82.9! And I'm in "good" shape due to the fact that other people bought at the high end of the market and owe a lot more but I think my entire hood just went upside down.

You can see my experimental numbers at http://www.realmeck.com/dir/ but if anyone can share parcel IDs in DM or at least values before and after and a streetname I'd be great-full so I can validate some numbers.

Some things are busted on the site. The easiest way to search for a property is by tax ID under advanced search.

I'm stunned that my house would loose $45K value but it looks like it's the foreclosures in the area.

How do I find my previous revaluation? I don't remember getting anything in the mail last year, so I'm not sure if my house went up or down in value.

I do have the numbers for my IL house where some yahoo thinks I can sell it for $100K higher than last year. Seriously???? What are they smoking? If you look at the stats for my neighborhood there is no way these numbers are accurate.

The website I mentioned above has last year's number and foreclosure info.

Mecklenburg County Revaluation is the official portal with reval info including links to the comps they used. Real Estate Lookup is the best site but it's going to change to 2011 soon and I don't know if it will include the old numbers still or not.

you can look up your tax value and other information on this database:

Real Estate Lookup


It is all public information. Once the assessed value is updated to the new amount I believe you will be able to get the former value by looking at the old tax bills, also available online.

Edit: Whatever GCharlotte said!
