The final report along with County manager's recommendations is now online at

Mecklenburg County - File #: 12-0621

I've just started reading it but you can easily tell how Pearson evaluated your neighborhood IF your neighborhood was included in the review.

There should be a neighborhood code on your notice of revaluation. It starts with one letter and three numbers follow.

If you can't find your code, go to Real Estate Lookup and find your property. The neighborhood code will be listed under "Neighborhood". Then go to the report and see if you're listed.

So, the County Managers Report says the following:

1. Approve amending the Pearson’s Appraisal Service contract to identify all the neighborhoods where there are major issues of inequity. Estimated cost: $180,000. Estimated time to complete: 90 days

2. Direct the County Manager to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to solicit bids to rework all the neighborhoods identified by Pearson’s Appraisal Service where there are major issues of inequity. Although the final scope of work will be contingent on completion of #1 above, staff can begin developing the RFP immediately. Estimated cost range: $1.5 million to $2.5 million. Estimated time to complete: 12 months from award of contract, including the appeal process.



Does that mean they are going to hire Pearson's to identify ALL neighborhoods in the County that have major issues, or are they just saying to address the ones already identified by Pearson's?

It should mean all the neighborhoods though I don't see how adding 1150 more neighborhoods can be done in 90 days.

I'm disappointed that the final report only listed which neighborhoods had problems but not a breakdown on what the problems were by neighborhood.

Correction: A play by play for neighborhoods is included in an appendix. That file is 103MB and can be found at mecklenburg.legistar.com/gateway.aspx?M=F&ID=851288ba-1b4d-4772-9189-55d4203a670f.pdf

Page 28 of the "Mecklenburg Revaluation Review Final Report" does say:

Quote:
Based on our overall findings from the performance of our Scope of Work, Pearsonís Appraisal Service recommends that the neighborhoods we reviewed and found major issues be addressed by Mecklenburg County. We recommend that the parcels that are included in these neighborhoods receive a parcel-by-parcel review to resolve issues of inequity. Neighborhoods we have deemed to have minor issues should also be addressed but may not require site visits. Under current North Carolina state statutes (G.S. 105-287 c), any changes to properties in these reviewed neighborhoods would be effective for the current year and forward but would not be retroactive.

It is important to note that approximately 15 percent of the tax neighborhoods were included in our review. Based on similarities between the neighborhoods that were deemed as having major inequities, it will be necessary to determine additional neighborhoods where significant issues may exist. We believe neighborhoods of a heterogeneous makeup of improvements with a significant portion of the total property value attributable to land are the most likely neighborhoods where significant issues may exist. It is our recommendation that Mecklenburg County review land to building ratios by neighborhood, overall 2011 appeal rates by neighborhood, and improvement reports for neighborhoods to try to pinpoint the areas that may be problematic.

Did you XREF your neighborhood code with the ones in the report? More details will be hammered out tomorrow by the board.

I don't know what that is XREF. I haven't appealed the last one as I feel it's just a waste of my time. The evidence is right there in front of them and I keep on getting denied.

XREF = Cross reference. I haven't met anyone online where their neighborhood was in the report though I've met a lot in person.
