City Appraisers conducting property reviews

The State of Minnesota requires cities to review properties every five years to ensure the Assessor’s Office has current and accurate information for use in valuation. In conducting the review, appraisal staff will view and photograph the exterior buildings and knock on doors to request an interior inspection to verify property information. Appraisers will carry City identification. If you are not home at the time of the appraiser’s visit, a note will be left to call the Assessor’s Office at 218.299.5344 to schedule an interior inspection. We appreciate your cooperation.
A property owner may refuse to allow an assessor to inspect their property. If the assessor is denied access to view a property, the assessor is authorized to estimate the property's estimated market value by making assumptions believed appropriate concerning the property's finish and condition.
