2020 Real Estate Property Assessments 

North Carolina is required to conduct a countywide property revaluation at least every 8 years. Dare County chose to advance the effective date a year earlier, resulting in a seven-year cycle. Dare County's last revaluation was effective January 1, 2013, and this revaluation was effective January 1, 2020.Many homeowners were shocked to see their assessment report and the huge increase in their property value. The average increase for properties in Dare County was 26% and Wachese saw the highest increase in property values at 47%. 

The average annual increase is 3.71% over the last 7 years. Not a bad return on your investment. Yes, many homeowners may pay more real estate taxes later this year but they also participated in one of the best Outer Banks real estate markets in a long time.
