Appraisals To Lower Your Property Taxes
Due to the downturn of home prices starting in 2008, a large percentage of homes in the LA and Orange County people were being ‘taxed’ on a much higher property assessment for years. If the market takes another downturn, you’ll want a new assessment to lower your property taxes.
At times, these matters can be resolved with a simple phone call. If after discussing your assessment with the local tax authority you still feel your property has been over-assessed, a professional, independent, third-party appraiser is often the best bet in proving your case.
That’s where Sammco Appraisal Group comes in. There are many different procedures for appealing tax assessments and it’s important to enlist the help of a top-rated professional appraiser that’s experienced in the marketing area and trained in the wild world of the appeal process.
When you are hiring an appraiser, it always makes sense to do your own due diligence and research before deciding whether to move forward with a property assessment appeal.
According to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), appraisers are not allowed to take “shortcuts”. We need proactive with our research and use it at face value as part of our independent evaluation. Hiring us for an assessment appeal, you are engaging us as an independent, third party to perform a professional appraisal report to determine the current true value of the property.
We do our own research from beginning to end. If you determine that you are correct and your property has been overvalued, an independent report from Sammco Appraisal Group will be more persuasive to the taxing authority than any other evidence you can provide on your own.
