Determining value of homes for elderly persons
(1) The Legislative Assembly finds that ordinary methods of determining the assessed value of real property, particularly by consideration of the cost of replacing a structure with a similar and comparable one of equivalent utility, are not appropriate with respect to property of nonprofit homes for elderly persons, operated by corporations described in ORS 307.375 (Type of corporation to which exemption under ORS 307.370 applicable). The Legislative Assembly declares that the benefits inherent in operation of these homes, especially in the housing and care furnished to elderly persons for whom this state and its political subdivisions otherwise might be responsible, justifies the use of criteria set out in subsection (2) of this section.
(2) In determining the assessed value of the property of a nonprofit home for elderly persons, operated by a corporation described in ORS 307.375 (Type of corporation to which exemption under ORS 307.370 applicable), the county assessor shall not take into account considerations of replacement cost, but shall consider:
(a) The amount of money or money’s worth for which the property may be exchanged within a reasonable period of time under conditions in which both parties to the exchange are able, willing and reasonably well informed.
(b) The gross income that reasonably could be expected from the property if leased or rented to the public generally, less annual operating expenses, reserves for replacements and insurance, depreciation and taxes.
(c) The relative supply and demand for similar properties.
(d) The relative value of the location of the property. [1969 c.587 §8; 1981 c.624 §12; 1983 s.s. c.5 §7; 1991 c.459 §138; 1997 c.541 §202]
