NE: Omaha Home Values Flat

Omaha Real EstateThe Wakonda area in northeast Omaha has seen changes over the years — white flight to the suburbs in the 1960s and 1970s, increased numbers of rental properties, an aging and dwindling population.

Now the Douglas County Assessor’s Office has weighed in with its own take on the homes north of Sorensen Parkway between 42nd and 60th Streets. The county is dropping property valuations this year for 43 percent of the houses in the area. Those valuation cuts stand out in the latest round of property assessments, which are largely flat in Douglas and Sarpy Counties.

In Douglas County, eight out of nine homeowners will see no change in valuations. In Sarpy, nearly all valuations are updated, but the changes are slight. Two-thirds of all Sarpy home valuations will go up or down less than 2 percent.
