Miami-Dade & Broward County Property Appraisers have already certified the 2010 property tax rolls.... The values are shocking!Written by Mike Narula
South Florida Property Appraisers have already certified the 2010 tax roll, with an average decreases of only 2.8% in Miami-Dade and an average decrease of only 1.6% in Broward, according to the Miami Herald. This, even while the average home in South Florida declined over 10% in value during 2010, according to multiple third party companies such as Zillow. Worst of all, County Property Apprasiers are saying values have actually INCREASED in Downtown Miami, Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Sunny Isles, Key Biscayne, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, and Weston.
These values, on average, are much higher than the market values of the properties on January 1, 2011. You don't have to be an expert to see that they are setting up the average homeowner to pay more than they should in property taxes. All this to help sustain the over-inflated budgets our governments created in the boom that were never trimmed back in the bust. Keep in mind this is just the assessed values. Who knows how high mileage rates will be set this year. We here at REPTF are not very hopefully to see them decline.

The Florida Senate narrowly approved tax breaks for a wide range of property owners, but some who voted for the ballot proposal Wednesday said they'd try to replace it with a more equitable version before voters get their say next year.

Entrusting the fate of your property tax bill with in-experienced, so called "experts" can lead to large contingency based fees and sometimes even no improvements with hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars charged up front. What consumers need to understand is that the process to file for an appeal of your property taxes is not complicated. What is complicated is taking time off of work to go argue with a court magistrate which in most cases is either a real estate attorney or appraiser that use specific guidelines in order to determine or dispute proposed assessed values of properties in Dade County. I have personally witnessed many cases of homeowners trying to represent themselves against experts that make it a point to drill homeowners with tough to answer questions specifically related to their valuation procedures.
Real Estate Property Tax Fighters ("REPTF") , was founded in order to protect the interests of Miami Dade County homeowners with flat fee, full service representation for only $275.00. The results are guaranteed or your money back.
As the deadline to file your appeal for a reduction in your tax bill, Real Estate Property Tax Fighters prepares for their busiest season. Tax bills have officially been sent out and homeowners now have a small window of time to act. Property values have dropped dramatically, leaving many homeowners underwater. Despite this dramatic decrease in equity, many homeowners will see an increase in their tax bill this season. It is time to fight back and demand that the community's property value assessments align with actual market values and trends.
Real Estate Property Tax Fighters ("REPTF") is the authority in appealing property tax bills (assessed values) in the tri-county (Dade, Broward, Palm Beach) area. They provide full service filing, market analysis and representation in front of a magistrate of the Value Adjustment Board. The fee is $275 with none of the contingency fees that many firms secretly charge their clients. They have had great success in successfully reducing over 95% of the cases they have taken on over the last two years. They have been mentioned in the press for their outstanding work and will continue to solidify themselves as the best flat rate service in the tri-county area and very soon all of Florida.
Many savvy investors and homeowners are already taking advantage of this down real estate market in order to save substantial amounts of money on their single family homes, condominiums, & commercial property. The Graph below illustrates how the wealthy are already benefiting from the downturn, so should everybody else...property values are down for everyone, not just the wealthy.

Real estate values in South Florida have plummeted and continue to fall. You need to make sure that your property tax assessment drops as well.
Did you know that the Property Appraiser’s office uses computer models and “mass appraisal” techniques to set property assessments across the County? They do not have the time to make adjustments for the individual characteristics of your property. Thus, the property assessments are almost never correct. It's your responsibility as a property owner to keep the Property Appraiser’s office in check and your assessment at the proper level.
In order to challenge the property assessment, you must be able to document the market value of your property as of January 1st of the prior year by showing its value relative to the qualified comparable sales and argue your case to the Special Magistrate at the Value Adjustment Board hearing.
