I think you would have to lobby the State government to do what you are proposing. Too many taxing entities involved. If you just get the City Of San Antonio to go along with it, what about Alamo Heights? Terrell Hills? Leon Valley? What about the County? How about the school districts, which BTW get the biggest chunk?

Actually, that's already done - when the values go up, they're required to adjust the tax rate - the effective tax (what you have to pay) can't go up over a certain percentage year-over-year. The frustrating part is - as is covered in the newest information on the Frost Bank building buy-out - that COMMERCIAL buildings are often WOEFULLY under-valued as compared to their true market value. THAT is what I think needs to be addressed.....but good luck getting THAT done.

In preparation for a BCAD review, where on line can you get recent home sales data for comparisons?

They say only realtors can get this data but if you know how to dig around in the county property deeds website, you can get more accurate numbers on what people paid for their property.

Wow... my home keeps getting older and in need of more repairs, yet somehow managed to increase in value $35k this year. I'm impressed. Busted pipe under the foundation, leaking chimney, 50 year old septic and all.

thats not entirely accurate there, the only price information you can find is what a note is for on a parcel.

you cannot get price information as this does not have to be disclosed in texas on the deed and is only disclosed in association with the note on the parcel.

Up 5% here...I guess moderate increases lead to moderate decreases.

Makes sense. I stand corrected.
