Tax Appeal

Are you paying more than your fair share of property taxes!

Sometimes, this concern can be resolved with a simple phone call to your local tax authority. But, if you still feel your property has been overassessed after discussing it with them, engaging a professional, independent, third-party appraiser is typically your best course of action to substantiate your claim.

That’s where our expertise at Appraisals of Southwest Florida comes in.

The process of appealing tax assessments has a variety of different procedures, making it essential to seek the assistance of an experienced appraisal company like us, well-versed with the intricacies of the tax appeal process.

Before you engage an appraiser, it’s often prudent to conduct your own preliminary research to determine the feasibility of moving forward with a property assessment appeal. This can give you an initial sense of whether hiring a professional appraiser would be beneficial.

However, it’s important to understand that as per the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), we as appraisers cannot take shortcuts by using your preliminary research as face value for our independent evaluation. When you commission us for a tax appeal appraisal, you’re entrusting us as an unbiased third-party to conduct a comprehensive appraisal report.

In this process, we carry out our independent evaluation from the ground up. If your suspicion about your property being overvalued is correct, our independent report will serve as more convincing evidence than any other information you can provide. Our professionally prepared tax appeal appraisal will be a critical component in your pursuit of a fair property tax assessment.

Understanding the value of your property is a crucial factor in many of life's most significant decisions. This is where a residential appraisal comes into play. A residential appraisal is a comprehensive analysis that determines the fair market value of a property. It's a vital tool, whether you're applying for a mortgage, considering listing your home for sale, or simply interested in discerning the market value of your property.

Beyond these commonly recognized needs, there are numerous other situations where a residential appraisal can provide invaluable insight. These include:

  1. Estate Planning: Understanding the value of your property can help shape your financial and estate planning strategies, ensuring your loved ones are well provided for in the future.
  2. Financial Planning: An appraisal can aid in making informed decisions about refinancing, investment, or property improvement.
  3. Real Estate Owned (REO) or Short Sale Scenarios: Accurate property valuation is crucial when dealing with distressed properties to ensure you are making a sound financial decision.
  4. Bankruptcy or Divorce Proceedings: A precise, unbiased property valuation is vital in legal situations such as division of assets.
  5. PMI or Mortgage Insurance Removal: An updated appraisal can help you remove private mortgage insurance (PMI) once you've reached sufficient equity in your home.

Appraisals play a significant role in the decision-making process of banks, lending institutions, and individual homeowners. They provide an objective perspective on a property's value, taking into account a multitude of unique features and market conditions.

Our experienced residential appraisers delve into meticulous research, examining specific factors that might influence the value of your home. These include the presence of any recent renovations, needed repairs, upgrades, and both interior and exterior features of the property. An in-depth inspection of the property is also conducted to ensure an accurate and comprehensive valuation.

With Appraisals of Southwest Florida, you're not only getting a service, but you're also gaining the expertise and knowledge of certified residential FHA-approved appraisers with 23 years of experience in the field. Our professionals have the requisite training, proven experience, and the competency to deliver precise and reliable appraisal reports.
