Sales Review was first instituted under Mark R. Stewart, and continues under current Lorain County Auditor Craig Snodgrass. Each time a property with a structure is transferred, an actual field inspection is done.
An appraisal inspector is asked to visit the property and verify the information. The structure is measured and all information gathered is compared to the information already available at the Auditor's Office.
The collected data is presented to the sales review clerk. The changes are noted and the sales review computer file is updated. The Auditor is in the process of building a computerized sales file which consists of a scanned picture and related information regarding the property. This system has proven to be a dependable source in the ongoing pursuit for accurate information.
