Not according the Denver Assessor's website.
"Under Colorado law, all real property (land, buildings, improvements, etc) must be re-appraised every two years. This occurs in each odd-numbered year (2015, 2017, etc). The Assessment Division studies the prices of properties which sold during the 24-month period ending on June 30 of the year prior to the reappraisal. For example, new 2017 values will be based on properties which sold between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2016. New values are set each year for personal property owned by businesses based on the information annually submitted by the taxpayers on personal property declarations."

We paid $328,000 for our home in Commerce City 4 years ago. Our neighbor just sold their home (nearly identical to ours) for $519,000. Never thought homes out this way would be worth this much. How high will it go?

I grew up in Joplin, MO so got a kick out of seeing that home listing above. Great town. It was completely leveled by one of the largest tornadoes in US history a few years back though.

I'm trying to convince my husband to move to a LCOL state. We like it here, but traffic to get up to the mountains is ridiculous these days. Would be amazing to be able to pay cash for a house.

I have my home on the market in Commerce City and can barely even get anyone to come look at it.

I just moved to Kansas City and bought a $300k home with about 2,700 sq ft finished in a good school district. I primarily moved to be closer to family but the Denver traffic certainly played a part.

That is a beautiful home you have for sale. They should have put you on the 9 News story! I would imagine it's more difficult with all of the new houses being built out here...we are in Reunion and our neighbor closed a few weeks ago, smaller home too.

That is why I questioned it too. It just doesn't sound plausible.

I work evenings and outdoors. It's not pleasant. Why pay a premium to live in a place with winter weather and snow?
Is it really a premium? Compared to San Diego, L.A., San Francisco, Seattle etc where homes are far more expensive.

Gallagher amendment requires a percentage split between residential and commercial taxes so itís feasible for assessments to drop while values go up to rebalance the percentages.

Gallagher and TABOR are the best things about Colorado. Only second to Prop 13.

Assessed value dropped 7.3K from 2017 to 2018. Total tax mill levy dropped from 111.679 to 108.0798 (jeffco).
