Will all property values change?

Probably. However, all property values will not change at the same rate. Property values may increase greater in one neighborhood than another. There are differences in individual properties and differences in neighborhoods. Sales may show a greater change in one neighborhood than another. Within the same neighborhood, different types of properties may show different value changes. A one-story home in a neighborhood of two-story homes may not increase as much as the two-story homes. An older home may not increase as much as a newer home in the same neighborhood. A home built in the 1700's or 1800's may increase greater than a new home. Remember, one of the purposes of a Revaluation is to ensure that your market value reflects the changes that have occurred over the past five years in the Wolcott real estate market.
