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.

When we met Hope for the first time, it was obvious that she was not only knowledgable and professional, but she was also obviously genuinely concerned with our hopes and needs. Once we met her, we knew we wanted to work with her. Hope was incredible. We've never purchased a home before, and she made the process so much less intimidating. She always made sure we knew exactly what we were supposed to do, what we could expect next, and what other factors might influence the process. She's just so knowledgable and resourceful -- we're so glad one of my colleagues suggested her to us; at one point, we were looking at a house and the mailman came up to the front door to deliver some mail. I never would have thought to talk to him, but she did and we learned all sorts of wonderful things about the neighborhood (and that's the house we ended up buying). We're so happy we had Hope to help us with our home-buying experience. If we buy or sell property in Asheville in the future, we'll definitely be calling Hope! She was awesome and I'll definitely be recommending her to anyone who's in need of a realtor in this area. I can't say enough good things about her!

Because I live nearly 3,000 miles away, Hope Swicegood Byrd had to take charge of every aspect of the sale of my rental property in Biltmore Forest. From contracting with landscape workers to addressing concerns expressed by an existing renter, Hope shepherded the sale of this home from start to finish in every way. Throughout the process, Hope was helpful, accessible, responsive, and thoroughly professional. I am grateful to her for her superlative real estate skills and her willingness to go the extra mile, and I appreciate all her energy, patience, and wonderful sense of humor above and beyond her marketing and sales expertise. Thank you, Hope, for making it all come together.
