This graph illustrates perfectly why it’s important for some home owners to dispute their property taxes. Can you see how the Assessor’s value is truly a “lone ranger” among similar sales? A Sacramento area investor contacted me to prepare an appeal report for him to demonstrate market value on January 1 (date of assessment). As you can see, there is an enormous difference between assessed value at $167,154 and market value at $95,000 in the case of this halfplex in Citrus Heights. The savings in taxes per year equals $901, which works out to $75 per month. What would you do with an extra $75 each month in your pocket? (money that should be there in the first place)
