Assessment Appeal Services

In my capacity as a professional Real Estate Appraiser, I often interact with property owners who are grappling with unexpectedly high tax assessments. If you’re in this situation, you might have received a rather unwelcome notification indicating an increase in your property taxes due to an ad valorem assessment of your property’s value. You may have a feeling that your property has been overvalued.

Occasionally, a simple phone call to your local taxing authority might help clear up the issue. However, if the discord persists post-discussion, your next best option is engaging a professional, independent, third-party appraiser to make your case stronger. That’s precisely the service we specialize in.

The procedures for appealing assessments vary across different property taxing districts. Hence, it’s beneficial to work with a professional appraisal firm like ours, armed with extensive experience and training in navigating the complexities of various jurisdictions.

Here’s an important note: Before proceeding with a property assessment appeal, it’s always wise to conduct your own research. However, do bear in mind that as per the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), we’re prohibited from relying solely on your research for our independent evaluation. The appeal process entails commissioning an independent, third-party professional appraisal report, and we are thorough in our assessment from beginning to end. If indeed your property has been overvalued, our independent report will likely be more convincing than any evidence you could gather on your own. However, this relies on our ability to conduct the work independently.

On certain occasions, your assessment appeal may warrant a hearing, during which you would need the appraiser to testify on your behalf. Rest assured, we are well-prepared to offer compelling testimony at appeal hearings.
