GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – On May 1st, the Mesa County Assessor’s Office began sending out Notices of Value (NOV) to property owners for the 2021 tax year, due in 2022. The Mesa County Assessor’s office says homeowners will likely see an increase on their NOV comparted to recent years.

“Between June 30th of 2018 to June 30th of 2020, here in Mesa County, the median price for a single family residential property is up over 20 percent,” says Ken Brownlee, Mesa County Assessor.

Rhonda Hummel, owner of Hummel Real Estate says, with the current climate of housing in Mesa County, it’s driving home prices up.

“What we have is low inventory and what that has done has bring housing prices up. The inventory of homes for sale in 2020 was 643 homes that were available to purchase in March of last year. Currently, March of this year there was only 182 homes.” says Hummel.

Property owners will have until June 1st to file a protest of their assessment. Visit for instructions.
