The Salem Real Estate Office is now using iPads and mobile software to collect and maintain property information in the city. The appraisers are taking new photos, sketching properties, and updating property characteristics throughout the city. These "real-time" updates are used to keep property records as current as possible.
These Salem Assessors will have proper identification at all times and will only be on the exterior of properties.
