If you were alarmed at your home’s assessed value on this year’s property taxes, we can help remedy the situation. Here’s what you need to know.
Just about a week ago, I started getting a lot of phone calls from homeowners who had recently received their property tax assessments in the mail. Many are confused about the huge increase they have seen in their home’s assessed value over the past year. If you're in the same boat, it’s time to get in touch with the assessor’s office to see about protesting your assessed value.
If you have a home that we’ve taken a look at in the past or want us to give you a CMA of what your home is worth in today’s market, we can use that to support a lower value. You can also give me a call and I’ll be happy to send you some comps as well. That’s my offer to you. Even though we’re extremely busy, we’re always happy to help whenever we can.
The right information is out there, but the county assessor isn’t using it.
The county assessor’s office doesn't take the uniqueness of your home into account, especially here in the Outer Banks. If your property’s value went up by $150,000, like some have, that’s not right. We’ve had a lot of sales over the last few years that the assessor should be able to see and factor into their estimation, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
It’s because they’re not using that information on their values. They’re using an algorithm that doesn’t take everything into account. We can help you use the information that they aren’t using to get a fair market value for your home.
If you need help or have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
