In Montgomery County, appraised property values have increased by an average of 12.5 percent in 2015 over 2014 valuations.

The appraisal district monitors trends in the real estate market for residential properties to identify the selling price of homes in the area, and those numbers are used to determine property values. Using this method, properties are grouped by neighborhood and type to keep values uniform throughout the area.

In Montgomery County and surrounding areas, new residential developments and an increased housing demand have driven up appraised property values significantly, which led to property tax rate hikes.
