But before the deadline, Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith is hosting six informational workshops in February and March for property owners to learn about the Board of Revision values appeal process and what evidence to prepare for a hearing.

A 2017 triennial update showed home prices in the county climbed more than 6 percent, rebounding from historic losses. About 70 percent of the total market gains were in the southern suburbs. After factoring in new construction, Washington Twp. had the highest gains, according to a final analysis by the auditor’s office.
