Results of the Market Study Analysis for residential vacant lot and commercial real estate of Kearny County, for Assessment year 2018.
A study of the real estate market indicated that the market is relatively stable with a slight
upward trend in some neighborhoods. The market studies of real estate were based on analysis of valid, arms length sales of real estate, which occurred in the years 2013 through 2017.
Values on specific properties may change because of changes in the property, correction of
descriptive information or calibration of values based on sales of similar properties.
All of the new values were reviewed by the Appraiser’s office based on an inspection of the
property. During the review of final values, no contact with the property owner was made unless additional information was needed to resolve a question concerning property characteristics.
In accordance with the provisions in K.S.A. 79-1476, the Division of Property Valuation is
required to annually furnish each county the results of the study relating to changes, if any, of the Use Value of agricultural land. Changes can and do occur as result of several factors including cropping practices, commodity prices and production costs. Dry crop and irrigated land values for Kearny County will have a moderate increase in 2018.
The study relating to Use value of agricultural land completed by the Division of Property
Valuation resulted in valuing ag land by soil types beginning in 1999.
By March 1, 2018 or thereafter the County Appraiser’s office will mail Change of Value Notices to all owners of record indicating the appraised value of their property as of January 1, 2018 for the tax year 2018.
THE CHANGE OF VALUE NOTICE IS NOT A TAX BILL. It serves only as the property owner’s official notification of the county appraiser’s estimate of value for the property.
