Town of Proctor begins townwide reappraisal for Grand List 2017

PROCTOR—The town of Proctor is preparing for a complete townwide reappraisal for the 2017 Grand List, Town Manager Stanley Wilbur recently announced. The Town has hired Appraisal Resource Group, Inc., to assist the town assessor in completing the required reappraisal information.
The first phase of the project includes the inspection of all residential and commercial real estate. The objective of this phase is to verify and update the Town’s assessment records to current standards for entry into a state-of-the-art appraisal software system.
Project staff members will begin canvassing the town this month. The staff members are required by the State of Vermont guidelines to inspect the exterior and interior of all structures. The inspection process is done on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. Property owners will be notified by mail when the staff members will be working in their area of town.
The staff will be collecting data on rooms, bathrooms, basements, attics, porches, garages, etc. They are not interested in the decor or housekeeping. The data collectors will be measuring exterior dimensions of all buildings and collecting construction data.
Also, the data collectors will be taking color digital photos of the exteriors of all dwellings. The digital images will be installed on the Town’s computer system as part of the real estate property records.
If no one is available when they visit a home, the data collectors will verify all the exterior information and will return at another time to view the interior of the house.
The last townwide reappraisal was done in 2007. For more information call the assessor’s office in the town office at 802 459-3333 Ext. 12.
The full reassessment will be completed for the April 1, 2017, Grand List.
