Like many communities, Swanzey has established a program of inspecting one third of the Town’s improved properties annually. Additional annual inspections are conducted to review properties that were sold during the previous year, as well as to verify building permits and other reported changes to properties. In the fifth year of Swanzey’s program (unless interim inequities develop in the Town’s overall assessments or in specific classes of property) a sales analysis updates to market value the assessments of all parcels in Town. This cycle of updating values leads to a regular adjustment of property assessments, helping to prevent any particular category of properties from being over-assessed or under-assessed.
