If you live in the Fort Worth or surrounding area, it’s  that time of year when you get that blue piece of paper with your county assessed value and it’s way too high. Countless calls have come in wanting help with comps to protest property values. Tarrant County has updated their system on how they appraise homes.

I’m going to share with you a quick way you may be able to lower your property tax value. This won’t work for everyone but if it does for you it’s the quickest way to get it done.

 

Now if the video above doesn’t work then give us a shout and we can run comps for you.

If you are thinking about hiring a firm to combat your taxes, that’s not a bad idea either. When shopping for a company to do this you want to make sure they are local, have been practicing for a long time, have a relationship with your county and have a money back guarantee. If your property taxes are assessed much lower than your actually property value it’s probably not worth the time. If you feel that your taxes are way too high, this is definitely a way to save money.

In Tarrant County on average your taxes are just under 3% of your home value. So for every $10,000 you can have the value of your house lowered that’s $300 saved. Worth looking in to.
