Haywood County property revaluations go out

It’s finally here: the week Haywood County property owners find out just how well their home and land values held up through the recession.

Higher priced homes are more likely to drop, as well subdivision lots, while median priced homes have held their value better and may see increases.

The last countywide appraisal was in 2006.
