Houses are selling in Hampton for a greater amount of money than they are assessed for hence the need for this re-assessment. The State requires the assessment to be at least 90% of market value and the current percentage is at 90 % and dipping below that percentage as I understand it. Reassessment then becomes a requirement. Good news if you selling!
