Lexington, Kentucky - Though one of the few Property Valuation Administrators in Kentucky to have any sort of property records available online, the Fayette County PVA is launching its new website that builds on the interactivity and usability of its outgoing site.
On the existing website once an address was searched and viewed on a map, users could not click to see values of neighboring properties without starting a new search. On the new website, currently in beta testing at http://www.fayette-pva.com, the user will have the ability to take a virtual walk down a street of property value data.
"People buying and selling houses use this site a lot," Fayette PVA David O'Neill said. "I can't imagine trying to buy or sell a house in Lexington and not using the PVA website, so I thought it was a feature that would be really useful from that standpoint."
The website is accessible from www.fayettepva.com and the new website URL is www.fayette-pva.com. O'Neill said at which point both URLs will bring up the new site. In the meantime he encourages all regular users of the website to work on the new version.
O'Neill said he wanted to update the abilities of the website even though this type of data isn't available in many Kentucky counties at any level of sophistication online. "There are a significant number of counties that are not computerized, but a lot more counties that are not on the internet," he said.
