Real property appraisal studies.

(1) Review of prior year's sales. In order to determine which strata do not have sufficient sales to produce a sales sample representative of the level of assessment, the department shall review a county's prior year's sales studies. This review will determine the number of appraisals necessary to be added to the sales sample.
(2) Selection of properties for appraisal. The properties to be appraised by the department shall be selected on a statistically accepted random basis such as stated numerical sequence or random number tables.
(3) Department appraisals. Appraisals conducted by the department shall include a physical appraisal of the subject property in order to assure that the most accurate estimate of market value is determined, and shall not be conducted on the basis of mass appraisal techniques. The value determined will be the value as of January 1 of the assessment year, or for appraisals involving new construction, the value as of July 31.
(4) Review with county. The department shall review completed appraisals with the assessor and/or the assessor's staff. After the review is complete, the appraisals shall be included with the sales data for computation of the real property ratio.
(5) Allocation of real and personal property values. Allocation of value between real and personal property of the total value of appraised property for purposes of the ratio study will be determined using each assessor's method of classifying real and personal property.
