Sedgwick County is mailing out the annual property value notices for 2013, and a majority of homes and commercial properties will not see a change. Those property owners will not be getting a notice.
County appraiser Mike Borchard says notices will only be mailed to those property owners who will have an increase or decrease in value, or if their property classification has changed. He says about 85,000 notices will be mailed, representing about 40 percent of the 220,000 properties in Sedgwick County. That is expected to save the county about $40,000 in mailing costs.
Borchard says 63 percent of residential properties will not see a change in value this year, while 29 percent will be lower and 8 percent will be higher. For commercial properties, 59 percent will have no change, 18 percent will go down in value, and 23 percent will be higher. Borchard says 40 percent of agricultural properties will remain the same as 2012, while 10 percent will be lower and 50 percent will be higher.
Borchard says all property owners can see their value notice and appraisal information by going to the county's web site at www.sedgwickcounty.org He says hearings will begin March 19th for property owners who want to appeal their value, and the appeal can be made by filling out the form on the reverse side of the notice and returning it to the appraiser's office.
