Mattson <br /> <br />APPEAL NO. <br />BOE 06-42-R <br /> <br />PARCEL NO. <br />602291 012 <br /> <br />Due to inclement weather the following hearings were held via teleconference. <br /> <br />HEARINGS <br /> <br />Joe and Joy Baisch <br />3485 Dosewallips Road <br />Brinnon, W A 98320 <br /> <br />BOE: 06-42-R <br /> <br />PN: 602291012 <br /> <br />Mr. and Mrs. Baisch participated via teleconference. Charlie Hough represented the Assessor's office. <br />Chairman Marlow explained the hearing process and swore in both parties. The property under appeal is a <br />residence situated on approximately 3.2 acres located at 3485 Dosewallips Road in Brinnon. Mrs. Baisch <br />stated that they built their home in 1992 and at that time it was valued at $99,800 including the value for <br />land. Over the last 13 years the value has increased every two years. With the most recent assessment the <br />improvement value increased by $86,000. This value increase is excessive. They could not sell the <br />property for that amount. Last year they had an appraisal done on the property, and while it was difficult <br />to find sales of comparable properties it was appraised at $350,000. She noted that a copy of the appraisal <br />was submitted with their petition. A portion of their acreage cannot be developed because it does not <br />meet the County code. Their value is based on speculative buying because they think that Black Point will <br />be building a large development. It is not fair to the community. Their property is assessed $43,000 over <br /> <br />Phone (360)385-9100 Fax (360)385-9382 <br />
