2022 Fauquier County Reassessment

Assessors are in the field starting September 21, 2020


Every four years, a general real estate reassessment is conducted in accordance with Section 58.1-3252 of the Code of Virginia. An appraisal firm (County approved) is contracted to reappraise every parcel at its fair market value, which is based upon a sales study completed by the appraisal company. These assessments are effective for four years unless a change is made such as boundary adjustment, division of property, change in zoning, court orders, and new construction.

The 2022 Reassessment

Fauquier County selected Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. of Daleville, Virginia as the Assessor for the 2022 general reassessment of real estate values for Fauquier County.  In accordance with State requirements, Wampler-Eanes appraisers inspected every parcel in the County to establish the current fair market value of the real estate.  The 2022 Reassessment will be effective January 1, 2022.
