The time may be right to look into a possible appeal of your assessment. If you live in an area that has online assessment information, it is easy as placing your PIN (property index number) in a text box. If you live where this isn’t an option, you will likely have to pick up a phone or stop at your local assessors office. Just remember as I write this, covid-19 restrictions may keep you from entering a physical office. This will be a perfect time to compare your homes value to neighboring homes. If you get stuck, go ahead and use the free valuation tool, we do need a full address in order to find publicly available records. Don’t be shy, we NEVER share this information.
Your neighborhood can have a direct effect in your home value.
You know that nasty house around the corner with the ugly paint job? That house can lower the value of every home around it. Did you know that those terrible roads leading to your home can help lower assessed value? How about schools that don’t meet national average?
Basically, if you think it is something that harms the neighborhood it likely has a negative impact on your homes value.
If you are getting started on your appeal but run into some difficulties, feel free to send us an email so we can help.
