Cameron Appraisal District normally delivers Notices of Appraised Value to all property owners, however, we are currently sending Notices only to those property owners entitled to receive them by law. Appraisal notices are not required to be delivered if the property value increases by $1000 or less. The notices will contain important information about the property, such as its description, ownership, any applicable exemptions or special valuations, the taxing units in which it is located, and the estimated amount of the tax year that will be assessed based on the appraisal.

Your residential property may be located in an area that has more of a commercial (including retail, office, or industrial) influence than residential.

Property values in general or countywide may not represent your specific market area or neighborhood. The average sale price or rental rate per unit in your area may exceed the average price for the entire county. Properties that are located in these areas are likely more desirable and have a higher rate of occupancy or absorption, which leads to better rents and sale prices.
