Overview of Collin County’s 2024 Property Tax Revaluation by the Appraisal District

Collin County property owners are seeing substantial rises in residential property prices, surpassing the recorded growth rates in the Dallas metro area. Although residential real estate has generated significant profits, the situation in residential real estate has varied, with some areas showing positive developments while others are facing decreases. A significant number of homeowners admit the decrease in the value of their residential properties in recent years, which may be partially ascribed to the rise in interest rates from 1.71% in January 2022 to 4.05% in January 2024. This position is also impacted by the consistent revenue patterns as well as the ongoing increases in casualty insurance and other operational costs.
