The City of Nashua has selected Vision Government Solutions to assist with the City-wide 2020- 2022 revaluation project. Vision’s Appraisal division will be working closely with the Assessing Department to make the process successful for the City.
The City has lifted the suspension of Interior Inspections and Vision Government Solutions will send a letter to the property owner of properties having received an exterior inspection during this period requesting that the property owner call to arrange for an interior inspection. Letters will be sent by Ward starting with Ward 1 in July this process will continue into early 2022.
Exterior data collection is also finalizing as data collectors are in Ward 9. Inspections for Commercial and Industrial Properties continues throughout the City.
If you have any questions about the revaluation process or need additional information, please contact the Assessor’s Office at (603) 589-3040.

Beginning Phase 1 of the Revaluation
Starting in February of 2020, Data Collection began and in March the interior inspections were suspended due to the Covid -19 Pandemic. Vision proceeded with exterior data collection. This data collection is critical, as it enables us to ensure accurate measurements both on main structures and outbuildings and to visually verify exterior characteristics of the property and condition. This is the most time-intensive phase of the project, but the most critical for data accuracy and integrity. Starting in July (Callback) appointment letters will be mailed to property owners requesting they set up an appointment for an interior inspection.
All data collectors will be wearing reflective clothing, a mask, carry an identification badge and a letter of introduction, have an “Assessor’s Office” sign posted in the vehicle window, and their cars will be registered with the Police as well as the Assessor’s Office in the City Hall.
After the initial Data Collection phase, market analysis and valuation will begin, followed by field review of properties to check and re-check values to ensure uniformity and accuracy of information. This will be followed by a Notice of New Values mailed to each property owner and an Informal Hearings phase, which enables anyone with questions concerning the revaluation process an opportunity to meet with a member of Vision’s staff to discuss their property value.
If you have any questions about the revaluation process or need additional information, please contact the Assessor’s Office at (603)-589-3040.
