Overpaying? Find out below:

Will this negatively impact my home’s sale price if I decide to sell?

No, in fact, your home can actually bring a higher selling price if you regularly contest your property taxes. This is due to the lower cost of ownership achieved when the valuation is regularly kept in check. Imagine this: You’re deciding between House “A” and House “B”. They are next door to each other and completely identical. The seller of House “A” regularly protested their property taxes and is assessed at $220,000. Their tax bill will be $5,500. The seller of house “B” has never protested and is assessed at $240,000. Their tax bill will be $6,000. Both homes are completely identical, except for their property tax bills. Which home would you be willing to pay more for? House “A” of course – the property with the lower cost of ownership.
