Residential Revaluation

The Town of Scarborough will be conducting a town-wide revaluation of all residential properties, with new values becoming effective FY 2019-2020. The Town of Scarborough last completed a town-wide revaluation in 2005. It is important to have a revaluation to ensure that town assessments reflect current market values. We have hired KRT Appraisal to complete this project. The revaluation process has five major phases: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review, and Informal Hearings. More about the revaluation process can be found here.

The revaluation is in the final stages of Data Collection. Once inspections are completed, KRT Appraisal and the Town will review the data and set the new valuations based on the sales analysis that KRT Appraisal conducted and the inspections. New valuations will be sent out at the end of July, and property owners will have an opportunity to discuss these with the Assessing Office and KRT Appraisal in August.

The Data Collection phase has been ongoing since October 2018. Representatives from KRT Appraisal initially did door-to-door inspections. If property owners were not present when the Data Collector visited, only the exterior measurements of the buildings were done. Currently, letters requesting an appointment for any properties where the interior inspection was not done. These appointments are typically 5-10 minutes, but will need to be scheduled in one-hour time slots.

The purpose of the interior inspection is to confirm that the information we have on the property is accurate. If you do not have the interior inspection done, we will use the information on file for your assessment. If you disagree with your new assessment, you may need to allow the interior inspection at that point.

The Data Collectors are registered with the Police Department and will have photo identification with them during inspections. Their information can be found hereIf you have any questions, please contact the Assessing Department at (207) 730-4060 or visit our office on the lower level of the Town Hall, Room 25.
