$5,945 – $8,216/Month


This is an exciting time to join a hard-working, high-functioning team of appraiser and assessor professionals committed to public service. The Assessor’s Office is currently involved in several major projects, including the development of a new Assessor’s Property Assessment System (APAS), and the appraisal and assessment of several large-scale commercial, manufacturing, research and development, and mixed-use developments being built throughout San Mateo County.

In general, Appraisers make site visits to properties to obtain, process, and analyze data for timely completion of the valuations of real and personal property, for tax assessment purposes. Appraisers are required to determine the accessability of properties upon Change in Ownership, new construction, Exemption, etc., per Property Tax rules and regulations. Appraisers may be required to prepare appraisal cases for assessment appeals and should be willing to attend, and if necessary, present at appeals hearings and testify as expert witnesses.


At the Appraiser II level, a qualified applicant will be fully competent to independently complete appraisals of residential, neighborhood commercial, light industrial properties and interests. While commercial appraisal experience is not required, it is a plus. Appraiser II’s are required to have a good understanding of Property Tax Rules and Regulations as they pertain to assessments due to Change in Ownership, new construction, Exemptions, and Exclusions.

The salary range for the Appraiser II classification is $78,852.80 – $98,592 per year. Generally, two years of experience completing property appraisals of taxable real property for tax assessment purposes is expected for the advancement from Appraiser I to Appraiser II. However, promotions may occur before two years with the recommendation and approval of managers and the department head.

The ideal candidate for this opportunity will:

  • Have a positive, “never-say-never” attitude
  • Have a commitment to public service
  • Challenge themselves
  • Add to the team
