City Conducting Online Property Assessments Until Further Notice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Eden Prairie’s Assessing Division will review data remotely to conduct property inspections until further notice.

State statute requires assessing staff to review 20% of existing properties in Eden Prairie each year to maintain data quality. Assessors typically perform a physical review of property information, which may include exterior measurements and photos and interior inspections as necessary.

To meet statutory requirements, while adhering to Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, properties will be reviewed remotely using online mapping and computer-assisted data analysis to conduct annual property reviews. Property owners may receive a request for information via US Mail, which can be responded to by phone or email. If exterior photos need to be updated, an assessor will conduct a limited exterior inspection and take photos from a City vehicle.

The Assessing Division estimates market values and classifies more than 22,000 properties for property tax purposes.

Market Value

The market values of homes must be in compliance with standards established by the Minnesota Department of Revenue and Minnesota Statutes. The market value should also represent the most probable selling price of the property as of the assessment date.
