How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?

Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Beverly-Hanks Welcome Magazine.

Ashley Dotson went above and beyond to ensure that from a distance we "saw" and "got a good feel" for the property we purchased. We could not travel down to see it, but she did a comprehensive and very helpful audio/video walk through for us. She also did a great job orienting me to the Asheville area when I was able to visit earlier in the summer. She answered numerous questions thoroughly and clearly and assisted as needed with our inspectors and closing attorney, keeping things on an even keel and on track. We felt we were in good hands and feel we still are, post-closing.

What can we say? She previewed it 4 times in 2 days; we received 3 offers, 2 above our asking price. It never had to go on the open market -- no signs, no parade of people. The buyer proved to be high maintenance, but Ashley handled all the curved balls she threw us very professionally and managed to keep us from wringing the woman's neck -- no small feat. We think she did a terrific job for us and would recommend her to anyone. She did an excellent job in all respects. We especially appreciated her ability to give honest, objective advice when we asked for it and her positive and reassuring attitude in the face of our frequent frustration with the buyer's demands. We'd recommend Ashley Dotson in a heartbeat. She's knowledgeable; she listened well and responded appropriately to all of our questions and concerns; she provided sound guidance throughout the process; she was always on top of every detail and very prompt in providing all of the information and/or documentation we needed at every step; she's very supportive, and, best of all, very easy to work with.

Ashley Dotson was thorough and professional throughout the process as we looked at both buying a lot and building as well as looking at existing homes. She was tireless in helping us hone our search and update it with increased specificity. She was excellent in getting us prompt notification of available properties new to the market over our search period. Ashley, anticipated potential problems and employed means to circumvent or ameliorate those that did arise. Proactive involvement. Ashley was very professional and great at trouble shooting and overcoming roadblocks. Ashley, also helped us sell our home in Hendersonville, NC, as well, so we were well aware of her desire to successfully complete the process in a thorough, professional, and easy process. The automated approach to signing paperwork meant the job was swiftly completed and forwarded to the other party. All in all, a very enjoyable, comfortable process from a consummate professional -- Thanks, Ashley!

My husband and I both feel that Ashley went above and beyond many times to make this experience as best as it can be. She knows the area and did her research to arrive at a good listing price. She advised us as to how best to prepare the house for marketing and sale. We really depended on her for her experience and expertise. She never led us wrong. We appreciate her and all that she did to make the selling of our home and purchase of new home a great experience. She is the best.

Ashley was very helpful, professional, and patient with us throughout the process. Beginning with the photos of the interior and exterior of our home, she brought in others with specialized skills as needed and provided suggestions when outside help was needed; e.g., radon remediation. Ashley provided suggestions for effective showings of our home and timely notification for viewings. During the negotiation process, she offered suggestions, but always made sure WE made the decisions on pricing, repairs, or contract issues. Finally, she was there with us at the closing, making certain that all our questions were answered and providing insights. Overall, Ashley was the best!
