Yavapai County Assessor upholds the highest professional ethics.
Appraising is a profession, and appraisers are professionals. The rigors of becoming a licensed appraiser have become more difficult than ever before. That’s why it goes without question in this day and age that real estate appraisal can certainly be called a profession as opposed to a trade. As with any profession we must follow strict ethical considerations.
We have a great deal of obligations as appraisers, but above everything we answer to our property owners.
Other obligations include numerical accuracy depending on the assignment’s nature, acquiring and sustaining a certain level of competency and education, and of course, the appraiser must behave in a professional manner. Maintaining high ethics and client confidentiality is standard operating procedure for us at the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office.
Our appraisers have fiduciary responsibilities to third parties, including homeowners, taxing jurisdictions and others.
Yavapai County Assessor has worked hard for its reputation for performing our responsibilities with the highest of ethics.
The Yavapai County Assessor’s Office holds itself to the industry standards and mandates set in place for ethics. We can’t accept anything less from ourselves.
Finally, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice also describes unethical behavior. We diligently follow these rules to the letter which means you can be at ease knowing we are working hard to objectively determine the home or property value for property tax purposes.
With the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office, you won’t have any doubts that you’re receiving 100 percent ethical, professional service.
