Home assessment accuracy up

Gregory S. Reeves of The Kansas City Star used Jackson County real estate data to show that "an old problem - over-valuing homes under $50,000 - may have gotten worse with the new property tax appraisals ... and homes that sold for $600,000 and up remain under-appraised by 25 percent." Most houses, the paper found, were appraised accurately. Overall, the county's houses were appraised at around 91 percent of market value, up from last year's average assessment of 75 percent or less of market value.
