On March 25, I wrote about
the healthy growth that El Paso County is seeing in property values and the improving economy in general.
At the time, El Paso County Assessor Steve Schleiker didn't yet have the total 2015 assessed values of properties, but he was able to provide them today.
As you can see, there's a 6.3 percent increase in values countywide (although it's worth keeping in mind that these numbers will change quite a bit during the Appeals and County Board of Equalization periods).
· 2014 End of Year Assessed Value = $6,439,985,430.00
· 2015 Assessed Value = $6,873,091,140.00
· 2014-2015 Value ($) Difference = +$433,105,710.00
· 2014-2015 Percentage (%) Difference: = +6.3%
Wondering how much the value of your own home has increased? Keep an eye on your mail. Valuation notices go out May 1.
