Agree, maybe BCAD had to "agonize" over lowering so many property values? Next wait after that will be the tax rates that will probably go up.

Got my notice from BCAD in the mail today. Although the 2010 proposed assessed value is not posted online yet, they are proposing a 2% increase over the 2009 appraisal.

Just looked on line, get this 10%! My house payment has gone up $100/yr. for the last three years. No wonder I am selling.

Just checked ours - went down 5k in value.

I don't mind - it's less taxes by $100!

I think 10% is the max...you can protest the amount.

With all due respect, folks - do you understand the game here? BCAD guesses at the value, sticks it on. You gripe, but pay - well, that's the value. You protest and do some homework - chances are you'll win. Check comps in the area - both their appraised value, but more importantly, what they've SOLD for - then fight!

It was a race between the Appraisal District and my turning 65, the BCAD has won.

My appraisal $XXX,787, to the dollar for 10%. I am , of course, protesting.

Hmmm... I can't use actual sales because they've been good in this area. Every time I see a house for sale in the neighborhood I think "only a crazy person would pay that much" and then it sells couple of months later without a price drop.

Hear you there! We bought this place in '04 - at the time, it went for like $143k. They're still building in the area - now the same house is $198k, with fewer amenities!! I've managed to fight off the AD to an extent, but it's kinda hard to do TOO well with it when you're on an oversized lot, extra garage, 320 sq ft workshop, etc.
