2016 Reappraisal Values
2016 Market Trends

2016 Reappraisal Values

The Harris County economy has begun to soften a bit and the booming real estate market of the past few years has started to slow. New construction is slowing, but it is still underway, and prices continue to remain strong. However the uncertainty caused by the drop in oil prices and the resulting impact on employment has started to put the brakes on the area's economy.

The Harris County Appraisal District is a regional agency responsible for appraising all property within the boundaries of Harris County for tax purposes. By law, the district must appraise property at the price for which it would sell on the open market as of January 1.

More information about 2016 reappraisal values for residential, commercial and business/industrial property is available through the left navigation bar where you can also find a list of topics with information about exemptions, how to protest your market value and the property tax process. There is also a direct link to HCAD's Electronic Filing and Notice System.

Boom, Recession, and Recovery

Boom, Recession, and Recovery - Residential

Appraisal districts are required by law to appraise property at 100 percent of its market value as of January 1. This map follows and illustrates the market trend through the recession. Red specifies increasing home values, green indicates decreasing home values, and yellow shows no change in value. When the recession hit in December 2007, home values throughout much of the county declined for the next two years. The map clearly depicts this change as the red slowly fades in 2008 and 2009. As the road to recovery begins in 2013, the red reappears and surpasses its pre-recession level in 2015. As the market has somewhat slowed, the red has slowly faded in 2016.
