Continued Improvement in Home Values Results in Increased 2015 Assessment Roll

Yolo County Clerk/Recorder/Assessor Freddie Oakley has announced this year’s annual Assessment Roll increased from the 2014 total value of $21.8 billion to a current value of just over $23 billion. Improving economic factors have continued to strengthen the real estate market, attracting new residents and contributing to an overall rise in home values throughout Yolo County, resulting in a total 2015 Assessment Roll of $23,239,449,070; a 6.51% increase over the prior year. 

“Every member of my staff has been working tirelessly to efficiently handle the increased workload that accompanies the fair valuation of land, property and many other aspects of Yolo County and I could not be prouder of the end result,” said Yolo County Clerk/Recorder/Assessor Freddie Oakley.  “Preparing this year’s roll was a wonderful experience.”
