 311 N 9th St

 Garden City, KS 67846




K.S.A. 79-1460a RESULTS OF




PURSUANT TO L.1919, CH 279, 2



Annually, at least ten days prior to the mailing of change of value notices pursuant to K.S.A. 79-1460, and amendments thereto, the county or district appraiser shall cause to be published in the official county newspaper the results of the market study analysis as prescribed by the Director of Property Valuation of the Department of Revenue.


A study of the residential (R) real estate market indicates that market values have increased significantly during the valuation year. A market increase range of 8-20% with a typical increase of 12% is indicated for most market segments. 


A study of the vacant (V) property real estate market indicated that the market is relatively stable with some upward trend. Paired sales analysis indicates that an upward trend of 3-5% may exist but data is diverse and generally limited to developing areas.


A study of the commercial/industrial (C) real estate market indicated that as a whole, market values have increased significantly. Analysis indicates an overall market trend of approximately 13% ranging from less than 10% to more than 20% dependent on property type and location.  Data is too diverse and sales are too limited to establish a definitive trend in specific segments of the commercial markets.


Values on specific properties may not follow indicated trends because of changes in the property, correction of descriptive data or adjustment of value based on sales of similar properties. Some properties may increase at a greater rate; some properties may decrease or change in valuation only slightly.   All real property owners will be notified of the county appraiser's estimate of value on or prior to March 1, 2022. The appeal period extends to thirty days from the mailing date.



In accordance with the provisions in K.S.A. 79-1476, the Division of Property Valuation is required to annually furnish each county the results of its study relating to changes, if any, of the use value of agricultural land. Changes can and do occur as a result of several factors including cropping practices, commodity prices and production costs.


The Division of Property Valuation and Kansas State University has established currently agricultural land values. FINNEY County will implement the agricultural land values as provided by the Division of Property Valuation. These values are available for review within the County Appraiser’s office.
