Property values across Pinellas County went up by about 7.7 percent, according to Property Appraiser Pam Dubov.

The figures are estimates; final numbers are due July 1. The estimates are necessary because they are the numbers that county and city officials use when starting to build their budgets.

While the County saw a 7.7 percent increase overall in the taxable value of real property, some Pinellas cities weren’t so lucky. Others did better.

On the high end, South Pasadena saw a 10.5 percent increase in the value of taxable real property. Indian Rocks Beach did just about as well with a 10.1 percent increase in taxable real property value.

At the other end of the scale, Belleair saw an increase of 5.7 percent; Safety Harbor, 5.95 percent.

Clearwater, Largo and Pinellas Park got a boost from annexations.

Clearwater had an 8.09 percent increase in the value of taxable real property. That boost includes annexations that brought in property with a total taxable value of about $3.8 million.

Largo also annexed property with a total taxable value of about $3.9 million, helping that city to a 9.3 percent increase in the taxable value of all real property.

Pinellas Park annexed lands with a total taxable value of about $2.2 million. The overall increase in the value of taxable land there was about 7.1 percent.
