CLEVELAND - Counties across Northeast Ohio are in the process of sending out proposed assessed valuations on homes, but concerns are growing as people in many communities learn their home values have gone up.
Homeowners want to know what kind of impact this will have on their property taxes.
The proposed assessed valuations are part of a property inspection process to keep equity in the market. It plays out every six years in Cuyahoga County.
"We have approximately 489,000 parcels that we have to view," said Lisa Rocco with the Cuyahoga County Fiscal Office.
Each of them recently stacked up against sale prices from January 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017.
"We also look at characteristics, size of home, age and the neighborhood that you're in," Rocco said.
A map from the county’s fiscal office shows property values in almost every city in Cuyahoga County have gone up.
"We're finally seeing an increase in the market that we haven't seen since 2006," Rocco said.
In some places like Lakewood and Rocky River, the increase is more than 20 percent.
