Generally speaking, improvements that increase the market value of a property will increase the assessor's estimated market value. The following are typical improvements that will increase the estimated market value of your property:
Added rooms or garages
Substantial modernization of kitchens or baths
Porches and decks
Extensive remodeling to include interior or exterior
Extensive remodeling may qualify for a 3-year exemption for improvements. Call the Assessor's Office for information and forms. City Council must approve the application prior to any remodeling being started.
