King William County has retained Pearson’s Appraisal Service, Inc. to perform the County’s 2023 General Reassessment of real estate, which will become effective on January 1, 2023. The Code of Virginia, 1950, as amended, mandates that each locality periodically perform a general reassessment of real estate to determine each property’s fair market value and to equalize each property’s value in relation to similar properties. Pearson’s Appraisal Service’s experience and familiarity with the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck real estate market were important factors in King William County’s decision to retain its services.

Pearson's Appraisal Service, Inc. is onsite at the County Administration Building located at 180 Horse Landing Road, during regular business hours.

Property VISITS

Members of the reassessment team will begin visiting properties in September of 2021. They will be carrying photo identification and will have magnetic County Reassessment signs on their cars. We want to alert the public to this as our appraisers will be coming out to residents’ homes to look at their property in general, as well as to take exterior pictures to assist in determining their fair market value. Our goal is to obtain accurate assessment of all real estate in the county. Reassessment staff will not be entering any homes. 

The field assessments are expected to be completed in June of 2022 and the notices of the proposed changes in the assessed value will be mailed out to property owners in the fall of 2022. These notices will also give the details on the method of appealing the proposed assessed values.
