2024 Property Assessments

The City of Devils Lake Assessor’s Office intends to complete an in-depth review of each residential property within a five-year period.  This review is necessary to make sure our office has accurate information for our analysis to set appropriate property values.  In 2024 the Assessor's Office will be conducting reviews of residential properties within Zone 3 of the below map, or all residential properties east of College Drive and between Walnut Street East and US Hwy 2.

A review of your home requires a brief inspection of the interior and exterior by the assessor.  The purpose of the inspection is to observe and list property features that affect value and will typically take less than 20 minutes.  

If we are unable to review the interior of your property, the assessor will have to estimate the features and condition of the home to arrive at an estimated market value.  An estimate of market value may not provide an accurate determination of the market value for assessment purposes.  Assessments will be scheduled for June, July, and August between 8:00am and 4:30pm Monday through Thursday, and 8:00am to 12:00pm on Fridays, excluding holidays.  Use the link below to schedule your assessment.  You may also call 701-662-7600 ext. 2 or email to schedule an appointment to have the assessor review your property.
