Revaluation of Cape properties postponed one year

The town assessor's office has postponed the 2020 revaluation project for one year, with completion anticipated in August 2022.

The postponement is due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Assessor Clinton Sweet. "This is based on several factors which include the uncertainty of when 'social distancing' will be lifted and the impact of the virus on the world economies as it may relate to real estate sale prices," Swett said in a letter to town officials.

Delaying the revaluation will also alleviate some of the budgetary pressures associated with the pandemic, he said.

Swett will continue preparing for the project, including developing digital sketches of properties based on aerial photos and calculations. This may result in an increase of decrease in the square footage of individual properties, he said, "so homeowners may see a small increase or decrease in their values
based on these changes."

Swett is also preparing a letter to homeowners explaining the delay in revaluation.

The town office is closed until at least March 29, but Swett can be reached by email, clinton.swett@capeelizabeth.org; or phone 207-799-1619.
