Albemarle reassessment increases to be less this year.....really?

Today in our local paper, the Daily Progress it was annouced that assessed values increased "slightly" on average .14%. The county os to release details today...  I am watching for them.

Here is a quote from the paper:

"The value of five-acre parcels with existing houses, for example, declined about 2 percent. Residential properties on parcels larger than five acres increased .04 percent. Attached housing declined by 4 percent, and the value of condominiums declined by 4.6 percent."

This does not seem in line with the pull back in prices. But remember that Assessments are for Taxing the public not for setting the price to sell a home.

They went on to say:

"Land value overall increased 3.2 percent in Albemarle."

That too seems a little out of line (in my opinion).

The average reassessment increases or decreases, by magisterial district, are:

 Rio: .81 percent

 Jack Jouett: .43 percent

 Rivanna: .57 percent

 Samuel Miller: minus 1.18 percent

 Scottsville: 1.4 percent

 White Hall: minus .79 percent

 Town of Scottsville: minus .46 percent.
