CORNELIUS, NC (WBTV) - Cornelius Mayor Jeff Tarte is asking Mecklenburg County Commissioners to halt property revaluation appeals, saying residents have deep doubts about the process.
Many homeowners say it's arbitrary and unfair, and they say that also describes the revaluations themselves.
"Ours more than doubled," says Cornelius resident Jen Monroe. "I guess that's the bottom line."
She says her revaluation is way out of line with her home's market value.
"The appraisal came out well below, like $100,000 well below what they appraised it for when they revalued."
Many Cornelius residents told WBTV they feel like assessors didn't give weight to the serious decline in home prices over the past few years.
"I think they ought to reassess everybody based on what a fair market value is for the house," Monroe says.
