Land for Sale Property Assessment: How Does it Work?

Land for Sale Property Assessment has three factors in order for it to function. Let’s take a look at these three things and check how they affect the assessment and figure out their corresponding roles.

  1. Tax Base – Property assessments are done regularly by the governmental body in a certain community or state. This governmental body is also the one responsible for determining the property taxes. Usually, the local jurisdiction will hire a property assessor to do the job for them. These assessors will use certain computer-generated tools that are made up of plots and maps, and together with their local real estate and development knowledge, they will determine the assessments of the properties in question. Reviews on such properties are done on a regular basis so that they can take note of changes like demolitions and area development.  You will know if a property is assessed properly if the market values are considered as well. These assessments are usually 10% to 15% lower than the actual market value since they are not based on the actual cost of the property. Rather, it is based on the value of the surrounding area and the property location in the overall financial landscape.
  2. Methods – The following are the factors that needs to be taken into consideration during a property evaluation:
    1. The size as well as the condition of the land and structures on the property and compares it with other structures in the area.
    2. The size of the lot, the surrounding establishments and it’s distinguishing characteristics.
    3. The distance of the actual property from amenities like highways, schools, shopping centers and so on.
    4. The accessibility of the property from sidewalks, paved roads, and the distance from the neighboring land for sale properties.
  3. Appeals – The assessor will be responsible for reporting the assessment findings to the governmental body that is responsible in setting the levy. An owner may appeal the decision of the assessor by providing more information to the authority that sets the tax rate. There is still a possibility than an owner could change the final decision of the governmental body. As a citizen, the owner can always file an appeal to have the tax assessment reviewed. However, it advisable to hire a lawyer that specializes in real estate law.

The mark of a really great company is how they handle problems with their customers. I had a problem with property that I purchased recently, unforeseeable for both myself and Lands Sales, and asked if I could switch to another property. The entire process took less than 20 minutes and I was very happy with how it was handled; finally a company in America that cares for its customers.
