JOCO Appraiser

The Appraiser’s Office is assigned the task of appraising (or valuing) real estate and personal property for tax purposes. You can access their website for contact information and to look up the appraised value of your home or business.

The Appraiser's Office has issued the following notice to all Johnson County residents: 

Home buyers looking for a residence in Johnson County are finding only a two-month supply.  The market trend for homes under $350,000 have the least amount of supply. This strong demand means residential property values are continuing to rise, therefore, most residents’ appraised values will go up again in 2018. 

The County Appraiser's responsibility is to value property at fair market value; the price it would bring on an open, competitive market.  Sales activity is reviewed to arrive at the value.

In Aug. 2017, the Appraiser’s Office formed the Residential Reappraisal Advisory Committee composed of realtors, lenders and fee appraisers, to advise the county of current residential market trends.  This past year, 95 percent of residential real estate values increased.  The areas with the greatest increase were in DeSoto, Gardner, Lake Quivira, Lenexa, Mission Hills, Olathe, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Shawnee and Spring Hill.

The Johnson County Appraiser's Office will begin sending out 2018 home values beginning February 26th. According to Paul Welcome, County Appraiser, "Most Johnson County residents will see an increase in appraised values of their homes this year. The primary reason is the real estate market is extremely strong with high demand." 

Considering the potential tax implications for many Northeast Johnson County (NEJC) residents, the Chamber and Shawnee Mission Post have partnered with the Johnson County Appraiser Paul Welcome to hold public information sessions. The public town halls are scheduled for:
