(Updated April 12, 2013)
Tyler Technologies field staff will be moving to new locations near the south and north sections of the county around Espanola, Pojaque, and Edgewood. Please check the Phase 2 maps below to identify if your location is being reviewed.
The Assessor's Office will be hosting public meetings for those property owners involved with Phase 2 of the project. The meetings are an opportunity for property owners to learn more about the data collection project. The times and locations of the meetings are printed on the back of the mailer sent by Tyler.
The next public meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 15, 2013 at 6:00 PM. The location will be the Edgewood Senior Center.
In order to ensure all property within Santa Fe County is valued at current and correct market values, the Assessor's Office - in conjunction with Tyler Technologies - is conducting a county-wide data collection project. This project's mission is to obtain current and correct data for the purpose of assessment by Assessor staff.
The project is divided into two phases. The first phase involves two Tyler Technologies vans driving throughout Santa Fe County taking photos of residential property and gathering any relevant appraisal data that can be determined from an exterior view of primary dwellings on the property. The second phase involves Tyler Technologies representatives going door-to-door collecting additional data about dwellings on the property, such as external measurements of the dwellings (sketches), heating and cooling systems, floor and wall finishes, and number of different kinds of rooms. At the completion of the second phase, Assessor staff will review the collected data and reassess the property.

Since the data collection project's start in April, the Assessor's Office has received quite a few questions from concerned citizens. The more frequently asked questions have been posted here, along with their responses. If there's a question you don't see listed, please call the Assessor's Office so your concern can be addressed.
The photos in the first phase are general photos, usually only one per property, solely for the purpose of general property identification. The quality of the photo and its contents are such that both the Assessor's Office staff and the property owner can quickly glance at the photo and ensure that both parties are talking about the same property.
At no time should any Tyler Technologies representative ask to enter your home. All information concerning the interior of the home will be gathered from an interview with the property's resident at the door or through an estimate if a resident is unavailable at the time the property is reviewed.
When a Tyler Technologies representative collects data regarding a property and a resident is unavailable, the Tyler Technologies representative will leave a door hanger on the front door or gate.
Typically dwellings within the same neighborhood have consistent construction and conditions. In situations where a resident was not available for an interview, but their neighbors may have been available, information from those interviews with neighbors may be used to construct an estimate of the dwelling's interior. A door hanger is left so that the resident may contact Tyler Technologies to ensure the accuracy of the estimate.
Due to the number of properties being reviewed, over 35000 in total, scheduling reviews for specific properties at specific times is not feasible.
All collected data is scheduled for review and assessment in time for the 2013 Notice of Value to be mailed March, 2013. If your property experienced a change in valuation, that change will be visible on the 2013 Notice of Value.
Each property reviewed in the second phase is being notified of the review by mail. The mailer is sent anywhere from a week to a month in advance of the review. The mailer is being sent to the owner or owners on record with the Assessor's Office.
In addition to the mailer, maps of the areas being reviewed are provided here online, along with photos of the Tyler Technologies representatives in the field during the second phase. Tyler Technologies will be adding staff throughout the second phase, so please check frequently for updates to the photos.
Tyler Technologies representatives should always identify themselves by name along with their identification card. They should also wear a bright orange safety vest with "Tyler Technologies" on the front and "Santa Fe County Assessor's Office" on the back. If you believe that someone is in your area misrepresenting themselves or behaving suspiciously, please contact the police. We are actively communicating with the City and County police, disclosing the known locations of all Tyler Technologies representatives.
