Value Equalization and Market Analysis
J.W. Chatam & Associates analyzes all county value estimates on a fair
market value and a value equalization basis.

  • We develop a fair market value estimate for each property based
    on the current real estate market.

  • Compare our fair market value estimates to the tax authority’s
    value estimate.

  • Compare the current county value of your facility to the current
    county value of other comparable properties within the market.


The equalization of fair market value estimates between
comparable properties is a primary concern.

You cannot stay competitive in the market if you are paying higher taxes than your competition.  We
prepare reports outlining the current county value of your property and all competing properties.  You
will be provided a copy of these reports along with maps detailing the locations of all property identified
in the report.  Reviewing both the fair market value analysis and the equalization analysis assures both
you and us that the local tax authority is valuing your property correctly.
