Cyclical Inspection Program
The assessor’s office has begun conducting this year’s cyclical inspections as required every 10 years by the state Dept. of Revenue. The inspections will focus on properties located on assessor’s maps 7, 7A, 8, and 9 (available on the assessor’s website).
PK Valuation Group appraiser Tim Kinski will be visiting properties in the area and is expected to complete the inspections by January. Kinski will be driving a red 2018 Hyundai Elantra and will have a picture ID. Residents should contact the assessor’s office at 774-801-3215 with any questions.
The inspection includes exterior measurements of the homes and any freestanding structures on the property — it is up to individual homeowners to decide whether to allow the appraiser into their houses.
Eastham’s Principal Assessor Colleen Mercurio said that accuracy is the goal of the inspections.
“Overall, our goal is a fair and equitable valuation. We don’t want anybody paying for things they don’t have,” said Mercurio.
Property owners can examine their 2024 property cards online in the assessor’s database. Any discrepancies should be reported to the assessor’s office. —Linda Culhane
