It is possible that your property tax assess value is too high. In a lot of cases it’s close right now and in many the actual market value is higher than the assessed value. Due to COVID-19 if you feel your property assessed value is too high and you want to do an appeal. Email me at travis@traviserickson.com for a virtual home evaluation. You can take me through your house on facetime, zoom, skype, etc. Or, you can email me photos of your house and I can send you similar sales that you could use to contest your value. Availability for this free service is limited but I will do what I can to help you before 4/30 deadline.

Thanks,

Travis
