Real estate

Real estate values fluctuate over time based on current market conditions. There are several approaches to appraising real estate value.

We have access to relevant market data and understand the unique nature of each asset so we can develop a valuation approach to ensure property taxes are paid on accurate values.

Property tax on real estate is a significant ongoing cost of ownership. Our goal is to minimize your property tax burden by researching and understanding local markets, being familiar with the process and procedure of local taxing authorities and effectively navigating the appeal process.
