Commercial appraisal service is not particularly needed in Lincoln County, Nebraska as appraisers from the county's Assessor's Office are more than capable of conducting the re-evaluation of residential properties in the area for the 2011 appraisal period. Mary Ann Long, County Assessor for Lincoln, has reported that the appraisers from the county office are currently conducting re-evaluation at the north side of North Platte.

According to Long, they plan to finish the re-evaluation by January 1, 2011. Appraisers are required to visit every home and check whether they have made changes, like added new shingles or windows or done any other improvements and made additions to their properties. Under the Nebraska statute, counties are required to review all types of properties within a period of six years. The county has already completed the re-appraisal of commercial properties during 2010.

Officials from the Assessor's Office have stated that some households are loath to have people looking into their homes and this is completely understandable. That is why county appraisers try to get in touch with homeowners before paying their properties a visit. If it is possible, they will conduct the re-evaluation with the owner in tow. Lincoln County officials have stated that appraisers from their office are professionals and highly knowledgeable about what they do, which means that there is no need to hire commercial appraisal service providers to conduct the re-evaluation job.

In cases when there is no one at home during a house call, assessors will just leave a hangtag at the door bearing their names, contact information and a series of questions. Homeowners who have hangtags on their doors are requested to get in touch with the Assessors Office to provide certain information and come up with an agreeable time to have the assessment completed. Officials have also revealed that some properties will have to be photographed, particularly those that do not have a current picture filed at the Assessors Office.

Officials from the Assessors Office have also warned homeowners in the area to make sure that they are dealing with a county-certified appraiser by checking their Lincoln County ID with photograph and their business cards. This will assure them that they are not dealing with fraudulent individuals who sometimes pretend to be working for commercial appraisal service companies.
