Rising values are a blessing and a bane to homeowners and the problem is only getting worse in the DFW market. Yes, your equity increases with increasing values but so too do your property taxes.  If you are not planning to move anytime soon, prepare for increased home values and increased taxes.  They make the protest season more important than ever. For many homeowners the protest process is the only protection against being priced out of their homes.

It’s often been said that “There’s nothing certain in life except death and taxes.” While this may be true, you could likely save money on property taxes by requesting a tax appeal appraisal.  This is where a professional inspection company like Fox Inspection Group can help.

When you hire our inspectors for property tax protest services, you’re commissioning an independent, third-party professional inspection report on the real conditionof your home. As such we do our own evaluation, beginning to end. If you’re correct in believing that your property has been overvalued, an independent report such as ours is persuasive evidence you can use to argue your tax bill.

Our report will identify things that can substantially lower your property tax, such items as:

  • Foundation issues
  • Roof problems
  • Sewer line concerns
  • Heating & Air Conditioning system issues
  • Differered maintenance

Your appraiser can use these major component deficiencies to dispute your local tax authority and decrease your tax statement!
