I attended an earlier meeting held at the Senior Center for older adults age 60+ and found it extremely helpful.  If you can tune in this evening I would strongly recommend that you do.  Chose the Webinar option if you have questions you would like answered.

Being a veteran of many revaluations, was there anything new to learn, Joan?


May be time to dust off the ol tax appeal template.

Not really.  The standards applied and technique used remain unchanged from prior Revals.  It was mentioned during the zoom session that the completion date could be extended if there were insufficient comps to get an accurate valuation of all properties in both towns.  I can’t recall that being a factor in prior Revals.


Is this going to have the in-home checks, or just do a mathematical reval based on the in-home checks done several years ago?

The concern there is the crazy real estate market that is finally settling down a bit, but there is some thought that it may take some extra time to get to a currently accurate valuation as a result. Of course, the main thing is that the valuation is equitable.  If everyone is high by the same proportion, then it won't impact the amount of tax we pay. But that would be unlikely, plus it is easier to make sure it is all fair if it people are confident that it actually represents current market value. What they can't do is just put it on hold, because the towns have been ordered (by the county or state, I don't recall which) to do it, pursuant to the applicable regulations. But they can appeal for an extension in some circumstances such as insufficient comps.

In the notice that was sent out - it says "Each property will be physically inspected on the exterior and interior by an experienced field representative".
