Has the value of your house decreased?

Does your tax bill reflect the true value of your property?

Don’t pay more than your fair share!

Real estate purchased between 2002 and 2008 have seen values decline as much as 60%.  These are record breaking declines with real consequences.  What can you do to turn this situation around?

Let me ask you a question:

Did you know that the Illinois Revenue and Taxation Code enacted in 1979 provides for a reduction in property taxes if your property value falls below the current assessed value?

If you purchased you’re residential or commercial property between 2002 and 2008 there is a high probability your property has declined in value.  If your properties current market value is less than the current assessed value or purchase price, you’re entitled to a corresponding reduction in your property taxes upon appeal.

How can my property taxes be lowered?

Example: If you purchased your home for $500,000 during the real estate boom and now the current market value of your home is $400,000.  With this 20% reduction in market value, or $100,000 less, this will save you:
$100,000 X 1.25% = $1,250 per year in savings!!

Can the new assessed value be changed after my taxes are reduced?

What is my taxes are impounded with my mortgage payment?

We will guide you on the easy process of having your new tax assessment filed with your current mortgage company to have the payment reduced.

What if I’ve refinanced my home?

Refianncing does not affect your assessed property value.  The assessed property value is based on the purchase price of the home.

What states do you cover?

Our services are currently available for properties in the following states: IL (not all counties may be currently covered).  We are adding new areas each week.  Keep checking back.  If you think your area should be added next click here to let us know.

Will an appraiser come to my house?

No.  We provide an appraisal for you that’s acceptable to assessors and is used by many banks for such things as “drive by” appraisals.

Why do I need an appraisal?

Most assessors will not agree to lower your taxes without factual, objective third party that your market value is lower than the assessed value.  Our appraisal provides the information you need to justify your appeal.  An appraisal alone from a third party appraiser can cost $300-$500.  You get this as part of your total package.

After I file my appeal, am I done?

No.  Your tax assessor will notify you about the next steps you may need to take.  Depending on your jurisdiction, you may need to appear before a Board, or simply wait for a decision to be made.  In any case, be sure that your assessor acknowledges your appeal and that you clearly understand the next step.

Can I file my appeal at any time?

No.  You need to look at your tax assessment to find out when your “window” to appeal closes.  We help you get the paperwork together, but you must file the appeal in a timely manner.  If you have questions about the timing, contact us.

Why buy now?

Because housing prices may be forming a bottom soon.  If housing prices are bottoming, the Fair Value Report from us will help you to document to lower valuation of your home.  Our report includes an appraisal with comparable values of other homes that have recently sold in your area.  Tax Assessors depend on this information when you are appealing the value of your home, so purchasing our Fair Value Report sooner, rather than later, helps establish a lower valuation for your home and so helps you win an appeal for lower taxes.

Why not wait?

Because no one knows when the bottom will form.  Besides, many tax districts base their valuations on assessments done in January and February.  For example, if you receive an assessment based on the value in January 2009 and you already have a Fair Value Report dated January 2009 from us, you will have compelling data during the same time frame to rebut the Assessor.

What if prices continue to drop later in the year?

If prices continue to drop and you want another Fair Value Report from us, we give returning customers a discount!  This discount applies to any additional reports purchased for the same property address.  You could come back and get valuation reports from us every 6 to 12 months to be sure you get the lowest valuation for your property.  We want you to succeed with your appeal.

Do I need to do anything?

With our documents, an appraisal and the forms you need for your local assessor, ready for your signature, for our one low fee.  With our service, you don’t have to worry about finding the right forms from your tax assessor or how to fill them out.  We do that for you!

Our cost: Is it worth it?

Calculate your own payback based on the savings you expect to realize.  Your first lower tax bill should show enough benefit to justify your purchase.

“I am very impressed with how efficient and simple the process of lowering my property taxes was!  From the moment I spoke with one of your agents, I was greeted with great customers service, and was put at ease with his high level of knowledge, and his attention to detail.  He patiently explained how the process would unfold, and everything he said up-front, was delivered along the way.  Although I am not happy that my home has lost value, I am pleased to know that I am paying $7,000 less in property taxes as a result.  I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is considering working with you.  If values continue to drop, I will contact you again!”
