Property info available online

Wondering how your home’s value stacks up to others on your block?If you know your neighbors’ names, you can find out on the new Garfield County Assessor Web site.Garfield County Assessor Shannon Hurst and county Treasurer Georgia Chamberlain recently put many of their public records online. Now, a few computer keystrokes can take Garfield County residents to places that used to require a hike up the courthouse steps.”This is the same information we have in the assessor’s office,” Hurst said.Users can access assessor’s records by first going to http://www.garfield-county.com, then clicking on the assessor’s site. The place to pull up property records is titled “Real Property Search and Tax Info.”There are four ways to access property records: Account Search, Parcel Search, Address Search and Owner Search. Hurst said any of the four methods will work, although a test Wednesday of the address search did not yield results.”You don’t need the account number, or parcel number,” Hurst said. “Most people don’t have those.”Type in a homeowner’s name, for example, and the information that comes up includes:-Total value.-Total taxes.-Taxes paid.-Land value.-Number of bedrooms.-Square footage.-Improvements.Hurst said the information could be handy for real estate appraisers, although it does not give property sales history. Assessor’s office information is updated quarterly, Hurst said, and tax information weekly.On the treasurer’s Web site, property tax rolls were recently added so that title companies, real estate agents and property owners can see the taxes that are owed.This treasurer’s information is found at “Real Property Search and Tax Info.”Contact Lynn Burton: 945-8515, ext. 534lburton@postindependent.com
