Statistical Revaluation Update – July 2021 The work on the Statistical Revaluation is nearly complete. Sales from the past year have been analyzed and the tables in the assessing software have been adjusted so that property valuations more nearly reflect current market conditions. The models are being “tested” next week. A representative from KRT will be in Town July 19th thru 23rd to complete this task. He will not be visiting individual properties, but you may see him pause in front of your home or even pull into your driveway.
After the models have been tested, residents will be notified by mail (late July or early August) of their new property valuation. The letter of notification will contain information about scheduling a hearing with the assessing agent if you want to discuss your new valuation. If you have any questions, please call the assessing office at 603-664-2192 ext 107
The Supervisors of the Checklist will be sitting at the Town Office on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, 3:30-4:00 pm for corrections to the checklist and additions of new voters. If you are registering as a new voter, a photo ID, proof of citizenship, age and domicile in Strafford needs to be provided. RSA 654:7; RSA 654:12.
