It continues to puzzle me why the value of dirt changes so drastically between neighboring lots, that are the same level, same size, same soil type, etc. HCAD must be using some computer generated results, but it would seem that the value of dirt should be closely the same for adjoining lots.

I live in Heritage Park Village in the Friendswood area. I protested my appraisal value because there were five identical houses (same model built in the same year by the same builder) one-half away from mine that were all $20000 less due a drop in their value this year. Four of them are corner lots with more land. Mine didn't drop at all. I was told they were in a different neighborhood and their values were supposed to be less. I can see two of them from my driveway. They looked at home sales and lowered mine by $4000. What a crooked bunch. That's what they consider fair and equal.
