June is the month to enjoy a slower pace and spend more time with family and friends. While there is a lot of news this month, I'm keeping the format concise and to the point ... articles and ideas for summer fun and activities, and a word (or two) on the real estate front regarding property taxes.
With the arrival of the 2018 Notice of Assessments, many homeowners are discovering that their home has appreciated more than they realized over the last two years. If you have not received your Assessment yet, and would like to see what your local tax office thinks is Fair Market Value, I have provided links to six county Tax Assessor websites. Appeal Forms are also available here.
While no payment is due at this time, it is important to read and review your Assessment, and ACT NOW if you want to contest the assessed value. Appeals must be filed within 45 days from the date of the Notice of Assessment.
If you disagree with your assessment, I can help with the first step in formulating your argument.
Reach out by phone or email and I will be happy to lend a hand.
I hope to see you out and about this summer ... on a trail, at a local Farmer's Market, or under the stars at an outdoor movie. As always, please let me know if I can answer any real estate questions or provide assistance in any way.
