Braintree Town-Wide Reappraisal Begins July 25

BRAINTREE, VERMONT, JULY 15, 2019 — After several years of planning, the Town of Braintree will begin a town wide reappraisal of all property beginning on July 25th. With the assessment of many properties in town being ten years old, a new assessment will bring values in line with present day market trends.

Following a competitive, state-wide bidding period, the Braintree Selectboard chose the Vermont Appraisal Company to carry out the groundwork of visiting, measuring and assessing the value of the nearly 700 taxable parcels within the town boundaries. The Vermont Appraisal Company has been carrying out these types of mass appraisals for decades in the state and their experienced assessors have been proven to be knowledgeable, efficient and accurate in their efforts.

The assessment work will involve a scheduled visit to the property where assessors will take exterior measurements, photographs and view the building’s exterior and interior in order to come up with an updated assessment. Postcards will be mailed to all property owners indicating the time set for their visit along with instructions for rescheduling the visit if the time indicated is not convenient. The assessors hope to inspect the interiors of as many properties as possible. The work will continue throughout the summer and into the fall until all properties have been assessed.
