Results of the Market Study Analysis

A study of the residential real estate market indicated that there is an overall inflationary trend.  For dwellings within the City of Hays the average overall inflationary trend from the prior year was approximately 15% with some neighborhoods experiencing a 20% trend.  For non-Hays areas of the county the market indicated an overall inflationary trend of 12% over last year.

A study of the commercial real estate market indicated that there is an overall inflationary trend of approximately 6.9% from the prior year.

A study of the real estate market for vacant lots indicate that there is an overall inflationary trend of approximately 7%.

Values on specific properties may not follow the general trend because of changes in the property, correction of descriptive information or adjustment of values based on sales of similar properties.


Annual Re-Inspection


The Ellis County Appraiser’s Office will begin its annual re-inspection of real estate properties in April 2022. This process will continue throughout the summer and into the fall. 

As is required by law, we physically view and re-inspect at least 17% of Ellis County each year, approximately 2800 properties. 

The map links below indicate the areas of Hays and the county that will be
re-inspected in 2022.

Keeping in mind the safety of the public and appraisal staff, we will make every effort to review properties with as little personal contact as possible.

Ellis County Appraiser’s Office personnel can be identified by Ellis County photo identification badges and will be driving vehicles marked with the Ellis County logo. 

Other routine work will continue throughout Ellis County, such as the review of recent sale properties and parcels with new or demolished buildings. These reviews will also be conducted with as little personal contact as possible.

Property owners with questions may contact the Ellis County Appraiser’s Office at 785-628-9400.
