San Diego County has had some major changes in the market in the past 10 years and depending on when you purchased your home you could be paying to much in property taxes. If this is the case you may want to have your home appraised for tax assessment purposes. A tax assessment is when the value of a home is calculated to determine how much should be paid in taxes each year.
There are instances where this can be resolved easily over the phone, however you should speak with your local tax authority to determine what your best solution is for you. If you disagree with the the value the tax authority gives your home, you may want to consider having an assessment appeal at which time an appraisal will be completed for your property. At Brandlin Appraisals we have qualified professional appraisers that are experienced in tax assessments that can help you determine the true value of your home for your tax purposes.
Prior to applying for an appeal you can do your own research to determine if you want to proceed, however per the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) the appraiser can not take “shortcuts” in completing your appraisal. This includes using any of your research or opinion of value as part of the appraisal. Our appraisers will provide an independent evaluation of your property with a detailed report on the findings and value.
If you are correct in that your home is being overvalued, our independent appraisal report will provide effective information necessary to appeal the value of your home.
