Considering a Property Tax Appeal?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Considering a Property Tax Appeal?

money countingIt is that time of the year. Property tax bills will be arriving shortly, which generally leads to property owners wondering if they are being assessed fairly. I can help analyze your commercial real estate or high-value residential property tax bill to determine if an appeal is warranted.

Call me and let’s see if we can get that property tax bill reduced.

Why Hire Out-of-State Property Tax Consultants?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Why Hire Out-of-State Property Tax Consultants?

appeal approvedI get that it is easier to deal with a single point of contact for property tax representation, but some of these national companies do a poor job on properties less than $1.5 million. I recently handled a successful appeal for a community bank and during my research discovered many other branch banks that are over-assessed. When I reached out to the real estate manager for a regional bank, I was told that a firm out of Dallas handles their property tax work. That firm probably does a decent job on the bank’s $40 million headquarters building, but they aren’t going to make the same effort on a 4,500 square foot suburban branch bank. They just aren’t. If you manage a bank’s real estate, I would welcome the opportunity to review your property list. I am very confident that I can reduce your property taxes.

What do Tire Manufacturers Look for in a Site?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What do Tire Manufacturers Look for in a Site?

IRR TireDid you know that the tire manufacturing process is very sensitive to dust? Manufacturers like to have a buffer between the facility and an interstate and want to be in a low lying area with minimal wind. While appraising a manufacturing facility this week, I watched a tire be made in 52 seconds.

Which Broker Marketing E-mails Do I Open?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Which Broker Marketing E-mails Do I Open?

I don’t know how many property marketing emails you get per day, but it is probably a substantial number. I simply can’t look at them all, and I doubt that you can either. I would be willing to bet that the emails that show the city and state clearly in the subject line get opened more often. I welcome your feedback at mdodds@irr.com.

It’s Property Tax Bill Time……

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on It’s Property Tax Bill Time……

tax appeal approved thinIf you own or manage property in South Carolina, you will be receiving your property tax bills shortly, if you haven’t already. As you know, taxes are calculated by multiplying the taxable value by the assessment ratio (4% for owner occupied residential and 6% for most others) then multiplied by the millage rate. The only part of the equation that can be appealed is the taxable value. Be sure to review this value closely, and determine if it is reasonable.  If you aren’t sure that the taxable value of  your commercial property is reasonable, email me and I will gladly review it. As a licensed real estate  appraiser, I represent commercial property owners in the real property tax appeal process regularly.
