Zeroing in on property values with machine learning

Join us for a webinar focused on how Wake County and SAS built cloud-based machine learning models to accurately forecast the housing market and property values.


About the webinar

In 1980, Wake County, NC, was home to just over 300,000 people. By 2016, the population exceeded 1 million. Explosive growth has sparked a robust building environment and increasing property values – creating a moving target for those challenged with assessing property values in a booming real estate market.

Wake County turned to SAS and the SAS® Viya® platform to identify changing market trends every day for every property. SAS built cloud-based, machine learning models for Wake County that consider hundreds of factors and daily property sales to offer timely, objective, highly accurate market forecasts.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about this partnership, how AI is changing tax assessment, and how it can be adopted by other governments with minimal customization.

What we'll cover:

  • How artificial intelligence improves assessment accuracy and productivity.
  • The benefits of unbiased support to analyze volumes of data.
  • How determining accurate property valuations helps avoid shock by property owners with unexpected changes.
