Evidence of value—Admissibility—Weight.

(1) In making its decision with respect to the value of property, the board shall use the criteria set forth in RCW 84.40.030.
(2) Parties may submit and boards may consider any sales of the subject property or similar properties which occurred prior to the hearing date so long as the requirements of RCW 84.40.030, 84.48.150, and WAC 458-14-066 are complied with. Only sales made within five years of the date of the petition shall be considered.
(3) Any sale of property prior to or after January 1st of the year of revaluation shall be adjusted to its value as of January 1st of the year of revaluation, reflecting market activity and using generally accepted appraisal methods. For example, for revaluation year 1990, a sale of the subject property or similar property in September 1986 must be adjusted, based upon market activity for that local area, to show what that sale would have been worth as of January 1, 1990. Similarly, for the revaluation year 1990, a sale of the subject property or similar property in May 1990 must be adjusted, based upon market activity for that local area, to show what that sale would have been worth as of January 1, 1990.
(4) More weight shall be given to similar sales occurring closest to the assessment date which require the fewest adjustments for characteristics.
