The Governor promised significant insurance relief, and it was not much.... Let's Make NOISE so that Real relief in taxes results. People are leaving FL because of taxes and insurance costs.
The Boom Effect: Low interest rates translate to more homeowners, fewer tenants. More buyers qualify, rates and payments low - So more homes sell. Demand means home prices have increased more in the past 2-3 years than ever. Sale prices set taxable value. When homes stay in the same ownership for many years, the benefit of Save Our Homes (cap on tax increases for Homestead property) is realized. When they sell, all bets are off and the home is taxed based on sale price. The state, counties & cities are getting Huge revenue increases and can well afford to cut our tax bill now.

I have served on the Value Adjustment Boards of Miami-Dade, Broward & Palm Beach counties, hearing Tax Appeals cases as a Special Master. I am familiar with ad valorem taxation, and am available for appeals. I saw too many senior citizens unable to pay their taxes I dont buy that the state will go broke from a $500/yr cut. Thats kind of like the story we were sold to get us to go for the Lottery. Then they took away federal funds!
Homeowner Appraisal Services
Homeowners need appraisals or appraisal reviews for a variety of reasons, including a mortgage refinance, home equity loans, Pre-listing services, and PMI removal. When you order an appraisal or review from us, you can rest assured that you will get the best in professional service, courtesy, and quality.
Refinance / Home Equity
Be sure that you request us if your lender asks you for YOUR choice of appraisal firms. More than likely we are already on their "approved list", and if not we will quickly provide your lender with the necessary documentation to become approved.
For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. A Professional Appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A popular money saver for homeowners in the last few years is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experienced in helping folks just like you rid themselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Home Inspections Services
A thorough inspection takes about two-and-a-half hours for an average size house. We are willing to take extra time to explain to your clients exactly what is and what is not covered. Our inspector is willing to go over his findings on the spot, even before completing the written report. Being on-site enables the inspector to point out or demonstrate malfunctions or problems and suggest solutions. Thus, resulting in fewer problems at the closing table. The home inspection should be a time for your buyers to become more familiar with their new home. Being comfortable with the home's systems and components will help your clients to be more confident about their purchasing decision!
Our team provides a balanced, non-reactionary view of the status of the house, as well as helps educate your clients on maintenance or upgrades of various mechanical components of the house. The inspection can be scheduled within three days or less so it can be eliminated from your checklist early in the process. If problems do arise, they can then be addressed well before the closing date.
