The appraisal process now transitions to the Discovery & Data Collection Phase.

From August to May, appraisers will be seen throughout the County as they are visiting new residential or commercial construction, reviewing, and updating characteristics of existing real property and business personal property accounts.

Appraisers drive a Company vehicle with signs and will have business cards identifying them as employees of the Comanche Central Appraisal District (CCAD).

Our top priority currently is to keep owners healthy while appraising properties.  Therefore, appraisers will limit contact & if you have questions, please contact the office using the methods above. 

Aerial imagery, digital field devices, and GIS analysis tools are utilized to assist in staff efficiency and ensure proper valuations and equitable results during this phase. This process requires collection and analysis of general, specific, and comparative data.  More information is available on these 3 types of data under press releases 8-27-2020. Please click Here to view the press release.

The CCAD is responsible for appraising 18,205 properties located within the 944 square miles or approximately 604,160 acres of Comanche County for 22 entities.  Some entities overlap into adjoining counties BUT only the portion in Comanche County is appraised by CCAD.  The CCAD is responsible for appraising property at a January 1 market value, and the taxing entities use the appraised value to adopt tax rates, calculate and issue bills and collect taxes.

Property inspection activities that are typical are measuring new or existing structures, translating the measurements into sketches, identifying, and recording relevant property characteristics, and taking a new picture when the structure has changed.

Appraisers may visit and inspect properties for various reasons, but the most common are to: measure recently constructed improvements (structures), measure additions to existing improvements (structures), or to confirm and correct any relevant data the district has about the property, such as quality and depreciation or agricultural land use.

Since the square footage of an improvement is an important element in the value, and physical measuring of improvements is the most common activity performed during property inspection, it is necessary to elaborate on the standards and techniques CCAD appraisers use.  The appraiser is required to measure, record, and sketch the dimensions of improvements observed on a property.  The sketch will later be uploaded to the Appraisal District’s software database.

It is the standard procedure of the CCAD to go to the front door and leave a business card and then start on one of the front corners of improvement with measurement from the outside of the structure and maintain a uniform standard.  If the improvement has more than 1 floor, the appraiser will make note of upper rooflines and windows, in an effort to depict an accurate sketch of the upper floors.  Since construction takes place year-round the appraiser may visit the property in the fall and then again after January 1st to determine the percent of completion on new improvements.

If the appraiser is inspecting a property with existing improvements on it, they will verify that all the segments listed on the property are actually there and may confirm actual measurements.  Anything that is new or not identified on the property will be measured and sketched to add to the property.  Similarly, anything that no longer exists will be noted and removed from the property.

On-site inspections are employed for ALL properties at least every 3 years, but appraisers may utilize aerial photographs along with existing property sketches for properties that do not respond to lock out letters.
