Iowa code requires residential property to be valued at market value in odd numbered years. For the 2023 assessment year, Assessors are required to use home sale prices between buyers and sellers from the previous year.
The dashboard below contains all the of the 2022 residential normal arm's lengths sales in Linn County (not including Cedar Rapids - for Cedar Rapids assessment information, visit the City of Cedar Rapids Assessor website). Almost all residential properties will see increases in value. These increases are part of a nationwide trend and represent the market change since Jan. 1, 2021, which means the change is over a two-year period. The market change is calculated using transactions made by buyers and sellers.
