Revaluation staff to visit properties in Union

Revaluation staff to visit properties in Union

 

Town of Union officials remind homeowners of the 2018 Revaluation project being conducted this year by representatives of the firm, Vision Government Solutions, Inc.

 

The first phase of the revaluation process is collecting current information on properties which have sold or have had recent changes made in Union.  As the data collector visits each property, they will confirm the exterior measurements of each building and document additional information such as location, topography, utilities, zoning, and quality of construction.  The home will be measured and the exterior inspected on the data collector’s first visit to the home.

 

Data collector’s will be wearing an identification badge and will have written documentation from the Town of Union, stating their affiliation with the project.  All Vision representatives and their vehicles are also registered with the Selectman’s Office.  Homeowners are encouraged to ask for this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes. If a homeowner has a question as to the identity of a data collector, they may call the Selectman’s Office or the Assessor’s office for further confirmation.

 

The interior inspections take only 10 to 15 minutes and include a quick tour of the house, including basement and attic space.  The Data collector will count the number of total rooms and make notations on heating systems, interior construction and extra features of the home. The homeowner will be asked to sign the data collection form to verify that the inspection took place.  An interior inspection will not be conducted unless a person 18 years or older is available to sign the form.

 

Data collectors generally work between the hours of 9 am and 7 pm Monday through Friday, and some Saturdays.  One attempt will be made to inspect each property.  If the homeowner is unavailable at this visit, a letter with instructions on how to schedule an appointment will be mailed to the current mailing address of the property.

 

Homeowners are reminded that specific questions regarding their current assessment should be directed to the Assessor’s office.  Vision Government Solutions data collectors are not Town employees and therefore are not prepared to answer questions concerning current values or Town regulations.
