There are data collectors in the town on a regular basis. They are conducting the required Property Inspections. Each data collector has a company (KRT Appraisal) issued ID and a letter issued by the Principal Assessor.
Assessors must conduct a periodic, cyclical inspection program to continuously inspect properties to verify and update existing data. The time period depends on a number of factors, such as quality of the original data collection effort, the absence of data on certain characteristics needed to accurately measure market trends in a new valuation system, the frequency of property renovation and remodeling and the level of property reinspections. Generally, DOR certification guidelines require that all properties be inspected at least once every 10 years.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Diane in the Assessors office at 978-546-2011 or send me and email at dlashua@Rockportma.gov.
