- Appraisal Department - The
Assessor’s Office Appraisal Staff consists of eleven residential
appraisers and two commercial appraisers, all of whom are under the
supervision of the Chief Appraiser. Five of the appraisers on staff
have obtained their State Certified Residential License (CR) designation,
and one has earned a State Certified General License (CG) designation,
which is the highest level one can be licensed through the SC Real
Estate Board. Eight of the appraisers on staff have worked for the
Assessor’s Office for five or more years.
Currently, the Appraisal Staff is going door-to-door reviewing
parcels of property in Anderson County to verify accuracy of the
files for the 2001 reappraisal. This is an ongoing process with
Anderson County, since it contains approximately 90,144 parcels
in addition to 15,924 mobile homes, all of which require on-site
inspection. In the Spring of 2000, door-to-door review will be
postponed in order to measure and appraise all of the new construction
that was completed in 1999. All properties that were split, subdivided,
or combined during the previous year must also be reviewed at this
All appraisers drive a vehicle with an Anderson County seal, and
each of them have picture identification so the public will not
be alarmed when appraisers perform on-site inspections.
In addition to the job appraisers perform daily, they have been
called on to assess damages incurred during natural disasters.
In such instances, the appraisers report to the Emergency Preparedness
Division an estimate of insured and uninsured property damages
to see if there is a need for federal aid.
All Appraisers are associate members of the South Carolina Association
of Assessing Officers.
