Why did my assessed value go up by so much?

Any home improvement would increase the value of the property.  However, the most common reason is because the state of Wisconsin wants assessed values to be close to the actual fair market value.  Homes are being assessed higher because real estate sales are providing factual data that tell the assessors what similar homes in the area are selling for, and these amounts have been increasing in recent years.
