Photo collection will commence in September and will be complete by the end of 2018.
Montgomery County has contracted with locally based Lexur Appraisal Service, Inc. to handle the 2020 Revaluation. They will begin by taking digital photographs of the exterior of properties throughout the county. These photos are the first step in our process of collecting data about your property.
In addition, updated digital photos will:
Improve the overall quality of the county's real estate data. Save taxpayers money by making the property tax administration process more efficient. Assist homeowners and businesses with "before" photos in case of loss. Enhance emergency management recovery reports necessary for state and federal assistance. Validate property addresses to identify homes for fire, police and medical emergency response.
All personnel assigned to this project have been issued photo identification badges that must be visible at all times. Local law enforcement will be notified of van descriptions and their locations. All photographs are taken from public right-of-way whenever possible. Project members are deputized to access driveways or private lanes only when necessary to obtain an unobstructed image. If you have any questions regarding the photo project, please call our office at 937-225-4326.
