The County of Nelson has retained Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd., to perform the County’s 2022 General Reassessment, effective January 1, 2022. The County is on a 4-year reassessment cycle.
Members of the reassessment team began visiting properties in the Fall of 2020. Assessors will be carrying photo ID’s and will have magnetic ‘County Reassessment’ signs on their vehicles. “We want to alert the public to this, because our assessors and data collectors will be coming to resident’s homes to view and assess dwellings and the overall property. Assessors will take exterior pictures and measurements while visiting each property,” said Gary L. Eanes, Vice-President of Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. “It is the Assessor’s purpose to collect sufficient data to determine the fair market value of each property. It is our ultimate goal to get a good and accurate assessment of all real estate in the County,” said Wampler.
The field assessments are expected to be completed in October 2021. Notices of Reassessment with any proposed changes in assessed value are expected to be mailed to property owners in November 2021. These notices will give the details regarding the method of appealing the proposed assessed value.
The home office of Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. is located in Daleville, Virginia. The owners, Steven I. Wampler and Gary L. Eanes have performed 128 reassessments in 51 Virginia and North Carolina localities over the last 25 years.
If residents have questions regarding the reassessment, they may contact the Nelson County Reassessment Office at 434-263-7075.
