The Town of Westford has contracted with NEMRC (New England Municipal Resource Center) to do a town wide reappraisal of all property in Westford for the 2025 Grand List. The purpose of the town wide reappraisal is to update all property data and calculate Fair Market Values reflected as of 4/1/2025. This will be a two-year project. NEMRC staff will begin their field work in mid-September 2023.
The staff from NEMRC will be completing data collection for each property in Westford, road by road. Prior to the site visit, all property owners will receive a postcard in the mail letting them know that NEMRC staff will be working in that area within a few weeks of the mailing. Property owners will be able to identify NEMRC staff by the IDs they will be wearing and a NEMRC magnet on the side of their vehicle.
What to expect during the site visit – properties with dwellings. During the initial visit, all physical data will be verified and updated by staff, including taking new photos (exterior only), measuring, and drawing a sketch of the building footprint. During the site visit, staff will want to verify information with you, and they will ask if they can do an interior inspection. Approving this request at the time of the visit would be very welcome; it usually takes just a few minutes. If you are not home or are not able to accommodate the request, you can call or email the Westford Listers’ Office to schedule the interior inspection.
Following the site visit NEMRC staff will leave an information card on your door. The card will have instructions on how to review the physical data collected on your property online using a code. This is a way for property owners to verify the accuracy of their data – i.e. square footage. The card will also include contact information for scheduling an interior appointment or submitting any questions. New values will not be available until after April 2025.
