When purchasing a home check with a grievance company to make sure the house is not over assessed (the estimate value of the property that it is being taxed on). If the house is over assessed you may be able to grieve the taxes and they may come down considerably! Many houses especially the older ones are over assessed. Many homeowners have no idea that you could even do this! Get in touch with Team Cosentino today to find out more!!!! Also if you didn't already apply for reductions on your house ask us and we can refer you to a great company to speak with!!!
