Property valuation notices from the Harvey County Appraiser's Office were mailed out March 1.

In general, property valuations increased by about 9.98 percent in Harvey County this past year. Residential property valuations increased, on average, 9.78 percent.

There are several factors that go into an appraised valuation, but perhaps most notably is the sale price of homes in the area.

For example, there were 417 home sales in Harvey County in 2022. The average sale price was $172,151. Comparatively, in 2021, 464 homes sold on average for $164,980.

Improvement projects, renovations, age and condition are examples of other impacts on a property's valuation.

Property owners have the right and opportunity to appeal the valuation they receive. There are a few steps along the process, but it simply begins with an informal meeting with the Appraiser's Office. At the meeting, the County will provide additional information detailing the property's valuation, and the property owner has the opportunity to explain why the value may be incorrect.

To schedule an appeal with the Appraiser's Office, call 316-283-8347. This phone number is active through March 31 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. - an appeal must be filed within 30 days of the mail notice.
