Why are the 2012 New Hanover County real estate reassessments not posted?

New Hanover County real estate revaluations will be posted on the county website sometime in January 2012.

New Hanover County residential property owners received revaluation notices in late December 2011, but new values for commercial properties won’t be sent until sometime in January 2012.

Therefore, the values are not yet posted on the county’s website, which provides a public search on information for any property in the county.

The 2012 values, reflecting the property revaluation – which is done every four years to align values with market values – will appear on the county’s public search website after the commercial notices are sent out.

County Tax Director Roger Kelley sent an email to Commissioner Rick Catlin explaining why the residential values wouldn’t be included on the county’s website until later.

“The new values won’t be on the website until we get the commercial properties completed,” he wrote. “We checked with our vendor on having just the residential values put out there but they said it would be all or nothing. We certainly don’t want the wrong commercial values out there. The values on the public website is merely a convenience and is not mandated. If a request is made for values of specific properties by someone we will accommodate the request.”
