Friday, October 6th, 2017

Fauquier County selected Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. of Daleville, Virginia as the Assessor for the 2018 general reassessment of real estate values for Fauquier County.  In accordance with State requirements, Wampler-Eanes appraisers will inspect every parcel in the County to establish the current fair market value of the real estate.

All Appraisers have county identification badges and their vehicles display reassessment placards.  Appraisers are in the field between 8 am and 5:30 pm Monday through Friday.

Mission 

Every four years, a general real estate reassessment is conducted in accordance with Section 58.1-3252 of the Code of Virginia. An appraisal firm (County approved) is contracted to reappraise every parcel at its fair market value, which is based upon a sales study completed by the appraisal company. These assessments are effective for four years unless a change is made such as boundary adjustment, division of property, change in zoning, court orders, and new construction.
