What is Mass Appraisal?
Mass appraisal is defined as the use of standardized procedures for collecting data
and appraising property to ensure that all properties within a municipality are
valued uniformly and equitably. It is the process of valuing a group of properties
as of a given date, using common data, employing standardized methods and
conducting statistical tests to ensure uniformity and equity in the valuations.

Assessors use mass appraisal procedures and techniques when determining the
fair cash value of properties in their municipalities.
