The staff in the Appraiser’s Department works with the public to provide appraisals on real estate properties and personal properties. We are required by law to locate, list and appraise property within Geary County. These appraisals are a part of the valuation submitted to the clerk, who prepares the levy sheets for the county based on the budgets presented by governmental agencies in Geary County.
Appraisers do not create value. People determine value by their transactions in the market place. The appraiser simply has the legal responsibility to analyze those transactions and appraise individual properties based on what is happening in the market place.
