Welcome to your new neighborhood!

For 2011, the Haywood County real property appraisal staff began using neighborhood delineation as part of the revaluation process to help analyze sales data in individual neighborhoods. Over 940 neighborhoods were created for residential, commercial and industrial properties. Neighborhood Delineation is a study of forces from outside which could have an effect on property value; and also conclusions on the typical housing, economic, social and demographic characteristics of the geographic area considered a homogeneous neighborhood. A “neighborhood” for analysis purposes is defined as the largest geographic grouping of properties where the significant economic forces of those properties are generally uniform, based on the following criteria:

  1. Physical Boundaries
    a. Natural - as rivers, mountains, woods, streams, etc.
    b. Manmade - as roads, highways, railroads, streets, corporation boundaries, etc.
  2. Housing Characteristics - such as type, quality, age and condition.
  3. Occupancy - as % of homes owner-occupied or tenant-occupied, and % of vacant structures.
  4. Predominant land use and anticipated changes.
  5. Typical land size and land valuation.
  6. Neighborhood life cycle.
  7. Estimates of market value ranges
