Vision Government Solutions
(ONLY source for sketches)
Vision Government Solutions is the company that does the CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal) modeling for the Town's annual assessments. Since there are approximately 11,100 parcels in the Town of Rye, annual valuation updates are not done on a parcel-by-parcel basis, but by modeling known as "mass appraisal." Mass appraisal is the process of valuing a group of properties as of a given date using common data, standardized methods, and statistical testing (IAAO [1990, chapter 5). Increases or decreases in assessments of a neighborhood or group of properties is done systematically by applying real estate market trends based upon the town’s property sales.
The Vision Property Data (link on right) provides the most recent information (or "inventory") about your property such as year built, square footage, building attributes, site size, land use, etc. It also provides a photo and the most recent sketch.
Although you can find OWNERSHIP information on the Vision Data Search, the most update and complete ownership information can be found on the SDG Imagemate Property Data Search.
Vision does not provide EXEMPTION information.

Tips on Searching for a Parcel
Depending on the browser you are using, you normally can search a .pdf document by clicking [Edit] and [Find]. In the find box type in part of an owner name (last name only is recommended) OR part of an address (street number plus first 4+ letters of street name).
The more information you put in the find box, the more restrictive the search, the less likely you will find what you are looking for. Do not include street, drive, circle, place, etc. in the street name.
IMPORTANT: For streets names preceded by north, south, east or west, be sure to include "N.", "S.", "E.", or "W." in front of the street name.
Streets with such directionals include:
N. Barry Avenue
N. Main Street
N. Regent Street
N. Ridge Street
N. Wagner Avenue
S. Barry Avenue
S. Main Street
S. Regent Street
S. Ridge Street
E. Boston Post Road
W. William Street
W. Glen Avenue
