Marshall County, West Virginia Property Values Rapidly Increasing
January 28, 2013
The assessed value of property located in Marshall County, West Virginia has increased by almost half in the past two years and has doubled since 2007, reports The State Journal. Chris Kessler, Marshall County Assessor, indicated that the increase in the property values can be largely attributed to the growth in the natural gas, coal, chemical and power industries, according to a news release on January 24. Mr. Kessler specifically listed natural gas drilling, processing, and pipeline activities in Marshall County as some of the items that have impacted the property values.
