We Charge a Flat Fee for Our Reports, Not a Percentage!
If you are attempting to protest your taxes the first question the county appraisal district will ask you is “What do you think your home is worth?”. You may have a good idea of the value, backed by research and possibly even data provided by industry professionals such as a real estate agent. But the sad truth is that none of this will usually help you. The first question the county’s appraiser is going to ask you is “Do you have a recent appraisal?”.
Simply put, an unbiased appraisal performed by a 3rd party is the most influential “evidence” you can present to the county. Additionally you could provide a recent sales contract which shows a lower value, or contractor bids that show cost to cure for damaged and deferred maintenance. But again, an appraisal is the most effective.
If you attend your hearing prepared with an appraisal report then you have the single most important piece of evidence on your side to argue the case that your taxes are too high. Our appraisals have helped numerous individuals protest their property tax bill and win.
