If O’Connor did your property tax hearing, call us at 713 290 9700, or call us if we did not do your hearing.
Determine the type of hearing – Informal hearings can’t be appealed, but appraisal review board (ARB) hearings can be appealed.
Next – review the evidence and data in 3 areas:
- Actual property condition regarding CAD records;
- Comparable sales versus your market value per appraisal district;
- Unequal appraisal
Property condition – If the appraisal district has overstated the quality of size of your home, it is worth addressing this. Call us to discuss.
Comparable sales – If most of the sales support a lower market value, further appeal is worth considering. However, if the sales are mixed with half lower and half higher, further action is difficult.
Unequal appraisal – Regrettably, most appraisal districts and appraisal review boards do not seriously consider appeals on unequal appraisal at the informal or appraisal review board hearing. If there is a strong case, we can review it together.
Curiously, appraisal districts that do not consider unequal appraisal evidence at the informal/ARB are accommodating when considering unequal appraisal during a judicial appeal.
Thanks for your attention! Call us at 713 290 9700 to discuss the evidence available and your property.
Thanks for your business and support.
