City of Lexington 2022 General Reassessment

July 29, 2021 

The City of Lexington has retained Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd., to perform the City’s 2022 General Reassessment, effective July 1, 2022. The City is on a 4-year reassessment cycle.

It is anticipated that members of the reassessment team will begin visiting properties on Monday, October 4, 2021. They will be carrying photo I.D.’s and will have magnetic City Reassessment signs on their cars. “We want to alert the public to this, because our assessors will be coming out to resident’s homes to look at dwellings and their property in general, as well as, to take exterior pictures/measurements in order to determine the fair market value,” said Gary L. Eanes, Vice-President of Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. “Also, it is our ultimate goal to get a good, accurate assessment of all real estate in the City,” said Eanes.

The field assessments are expected to be completed in Spring 2022 and the notices of the proposed change in the assessed value will be mailed out to property owners in April 2022. These notices will give the details on the method of appealing the proposed assessed value.

Wampler-Eanes’ home office is in Daleville, Virginia and over the last 25 years, the owners, Steven I. Wampler and Gary L. Eanes have performed 128 reassessments in 55 Virginia and North Carolina localities.

If residents have any questions as to the reassessment, please call the City of Lexington Commissioner of the Revenue’s office at 540-462-3701.
