Enumclaw to be visited by county assessors | Enumclaw police department

King County assessors canvas the entire county every six years - it’s now Enumclaw’s turn.

The following was provided by the Enumclaw Police Department:

The King County Department of Assessments will be sending real estate appraisers out into the city of Enumclaw and surrounding area beginning this fall and running through next summer for the purposes of physical inspection.

As you may know, physical inspection is a once-every-six-years on-site inspection of all real estate in King County. Each year a different area is inspected so that after six years all areas of the county have gone through physical inspection. Enumclaw last had a physical inspection in late 2014/early 2015.

Appraisers will be visiting and inspecting every property in the Enumclaw inspection area. This typically means driving slowly through neighborhoods, taking photos to gather information regarding land conditions, homes and outbuildings. Of course with COVID restrictions inspectors will keep any personal contact with residents to a bare minimum and will be wearing masks at that time. Appraisers wear badges with their photo and vests, identifying themselves as King County Assessor officials.

Appraisers will use their personal vehicles but will always have a King County badge identifying themselves. Personal vehicles that we expect to be driven during this years’ inspection include:

• 2010 / Honda / Civic / Charcoal

• 2018 / Subaru / Forester / Black

• 2018 / Nissan / Rogue / Black

Additional information about this process can be found on the Assessor’s website here: http://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/assessor/How-Assessments-Work/Residential.aspx

Residents may contact the public information office for more info at 206-296-7300.
