Field Inspections

August 07, 2007- Representatives from Vision Appraisal Technology of Northboro, Mass, a firm hired by the Town of Windsor Locks to assist in the town-wide revaluation required for the October 1, 2008 Grand List, will begin collecting data from homes and businesses during the week of August 27th.


The data collectors or "listers" will carry photo identification, and a description of their cars and license plate numbers will be on file with the Police Department, and the Tax Assessor's Office. All data collectors will be required to carry both a Town of Windsor Locks identification card, as well as a Vision ID.  Assessor Donna Murphy suggests that homeowners request identification before granting anyone permission to enter your home.  Please feel free to contact the Assessor’s Office at 627-1448 to verify any information. 


During this, the initial phase of the municipal revaluation, listers will visit residential and commercial properties to physically inspect and measure a building's interior and exterior. Building characteristics such as location, size, age, quality of construction, improvements, topography, utilities, applicable zoning restrictions, are noted. To ensure a home is inspected, a homeowner must sign a data collection form to verify the inspection. The entire process takes approximately 15 minutes. Listers generally work between 8 AM & 7 PM Monday through Friday, and some additional weekend hours. Two separate attempts are usually made to enter a property, if no one is home on those occasions a letter will be sent to homeowners to call and schedule an appointment at his/her convenience.


The Town of Windsor Locks, in conjunction with Vision Appraisal, will be holding an informational meeting on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 at Town Hall to discuss the timeline for Revaluation, and answer questions property owners may have.  A PowerPoint demonstration will be available online at www.visionappraisal.com if you would like to obtain information, but are unable to attend the meeting.
