Appraiser Dennis Pownall represented the Assessor's office and was <br />sworn in by Chairman Marlow. The property under appeal consists oftwo bare land parcels located in <br />Brinnon and valued at $10,000 each. The appellants stated on their appeal form that they had marketed these <br />lots for $8,750 each which is less than the assessed value. Due to the constraints placed on their property by <br />the Jefferson County Planning Department, escrow money on the prospective sale was returned to the <br />prospective buyer. These lots together were determined to be too small for a two-bedroom house, driveway <br />and two parking spaces. Prospective buyer offered $7,750 for each lot. The appellants estimate the value of <br />each parcel to be $5,000. <br /> <br />Mr. Pownall eXplained that the assessment of these parcels have doubled in value since the last revaluation <br />cycle. He discussed comparable property sales in the area. The Board may want to look at the topography <br />when they conduct their site inspection of the property. Mr. Pownall believes an adjustment is necessary, <br />however, he is not sure to what degree. He then read a letter he sent to the appellants in which he suggested <br />they appeal to the Board of Equalization. <br /> <br />Hearing no further testimony Chairman Marlow closed the hearing. The Board will take all the information <br />under advisement, conduct a physical inspection of the property and make a determination at a later date. <br /> <br />Phone (360)385-9100 / 1-800-831-2678 Fax (360)385-9382 <br />
