Any small landlords out there? Have you gotten your appraisal? We got ours. 25% hike. Ouch. And no cap.

What part of town is that in? Our rental house in Oak Hill went down $1,000. Our home in Legend Oaks, not very far away, went up around 2%.

Ben White & I-35. It's a small warehouse property. One one hand, it has Ben White frontage (although visibility doesn't mean much to a warehouse and there are no curb cuts facing the frontage). On the other hand, accessibility was restricted by the new interchange (which is otherwise really nice).

The majority of the hike was land as opposed to improvements.

9.2% increase in Northwest Hills on rental property, but I protest it each year and there is always a bounceback. So I wouldn't necessarily equate my numbers to a trend.

BTW, it's always worth the time to protest IMO. Even a small percentage reduction translates into hundreds of dollars of savings at least, considering how big the tax bills are in that area.

Both my properties came in the same as last year. You should still protest this year no matter how your appraisal came in. There are a ton of sales comps out there from this past year that will lower your appraisal. There are a ton of tax protest businesses out there that are free and only charge 33% to 50% of your savings as a one time charge. The tax protest business that charges the least that I found was "Discount Property Taxes" in Austin.
