Appraisers from the Assessor’s Office are beginning field inspections. The current annual inspection area for revaluation in 2021, is Cycle Area 6 (see inspection area map). Every year 1/6th of the properties in the county are inspected, and the remaining 5/6th of the county properties are statistically revalued. The 2021 inspection areas include portions of Lummi Reservation, Marietta, Birchwood, Cordata, Meridian, King Mountain, Irongate, Barkley, Alabama Hill, North Silver Beach, Toad Lake, and north end of Lake Whatcom.
Inspections are of the exterior of buildings only. If an appraiser needs to be out of their vehicle, they will wear masks and maintain physical distance at all times during inspections. Inspections include taking pictures, and may include an exterior walk-around and/or verification of building dimensions. Appraisers drive white vehicles with the county emblem, have orange vests, and carry identification. Though our office is closed to the public, the staff is working and can be reached via mail, phone or e-mail. Please call 360-778-5050 with any questions or concerns.
