Are You Overpaying On Your Property Taxes?

With home values down 15-50%, you may be overpaying on your property taxes by thousands of dollars each year! Because values have declined, right now is a rare opportunity to lower your property taxes. If your home value is lower than your property tax bill states, then you can request a reassessment of your property value, which is the basis for calculating your property tax. To help you through the cumbersome process, we can assist you by working with one of our trusted strategic partners in the real estate industry. Please contact us if you’d like to learn more.

Considering Refinancing or Buying A Home?

With 30-year fixed mortgage rates dropping to near historical lows, now is an excellent time to consider refinancing your mortgage or potentially buying a new home. To explore either of these scenarios, please call us to discuss the potential impact it could have on your financial goals.

Should you decide to move forward, then contacting a lender would give you more specific information about current mortgage offerings. If you don't have a trusted lender or mortgage planner or would like a second (or third) opinion, we could introduce you to one of our strategic business partners who has certified mortgage planners. They would be able to assist in evaluating which mortgage options might fit in best with your financial situation and goals.
