Happy Thursday, Y’all! It’s that time of the year again — appraisal notices are out for Travis, Hays, Williamson and Bastrop counties. According to the Travis County Appraisal District (TCAD), residential properties’ values increased a whopping 56 percent since last year!
Because of the major rise in housing values this past year, it’s important to look into protesting your property value taxes if you believe it’s higher than the current market value. Doing this can save you a lot of money over time! It’s also important to note that homeowners won’t receive an appraisal notice unless their home's appraisal value has gone up more than $1,000. So it’s key to be proactive and get this checked out for yourself. One of the easiest ways to seamlessly evaluate your home's value and get help with protesting is by hiring a professional.
