2017 Albany Assessing Report
The Albany real estate market continues to gradually improve along with
most of the Mount Washington Valley. The town continually monitors the market
to recognize trends and shifts in values in order to make adjustments to the
assessing system as needed. The 2015 statistical update is still performing well
in comparison to sale prices, and the assessment-sales ratio study conducted
with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration still shows good
equity between properties. The next town-wide update of values is scheduled for
2020, as mandated by the state constitution.
In light of Albany’s substantial tax rate spike last fall, we remind everyone
that changes in the school, county, town, and state budgets are the largest
factors influencing your property tax bill from year to year. The assessing system
simply distributes the tax burden that is voted on at town meeting each year. For
more information on the tax rate and budgets, see the town’s website at:
http://www.albanynh.org/.
For 2018, the town plans to review and reassess those properties with
physical changes (building permits, subdivisions, demolition, etc.) and sale
properties, as well as continue its data verification program. This process
includes reviewing different neighborhoods and visiting other randomly selected
properties to check measurements and other features used in calculating
property assessments in a cyclical fashion over a number of years. The town’s
contracted assessing company will normally request a brief interior review when
making a visit to any property. They carry photo identification and their vehicles
are on file with the town office and local police.
We appreciate your cooperation with this important task. If you have any
questions or concerns regarding the assessing function please contact the town
office. Our mission is to maintain a fair and equitable assessing system for all
property taxpayers.
