REVALUATION PHASE I – DATA COLLECTION VIDEO

Why is a revaluation needed?

A revaluation is a process that creates a solid base of inventory for tax purposes. The Maine Constitution states that,all taxes upon real and personal estate, assessed by authority of this State, shall be apportioned and assessed equally according to the just value thereof”.

Brunswick’s last revaluation was conducted in 2000. Since then, changing economic conditions have caused inequities to develop. Currently, our values are at 70% of market value; after a revaluation, the values will match 100% of market value, and the tax rate will decrease.

What is a revaluation?

Revaluation involves the reappraisal of all real estate in the town in order to bring about uniformity in property valuations. A revaluation (or reval) does not increase the town’s revenue. Towns vote to pay for a revaluation because they recognize the need to equalize the values so that no one taxpayer pays more or less than their fair share of the tax burden.  For more information please click on the BRUNSWICK REVAL 2017.

Who is doing the revaluation?

The Firm of KRT Appraisal has been hired by the Town of Brunswick, to conduct the Town wide revaluation project.   KRT Appraisal will be working with the Assessor’s Office to make the process a successful one. There are five major phases to a municipal revaluation: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review, and Informal Hearings. During these phases many tasks will be implemented in order to successfully complete the revaluation.  For more information on these phases please click on KRT APPRAISAL.
