Seattle, WA and Fairfax County, VA (Vocus) April 30, 2010
After a comprehensive analysis of 342,000 Fairfax County, Virginia residential properties, approximately 37,000 are overassessed and eligible for property tax appeal, according to Seattle-based ValueAppeal, Inc. The annual deadline for filing a residential property tax appeal is June 1, 2010, but many homeowners find the process confusing or too time consuming to complete themselves. According to the company, the average savings by property owners who appeal unfair assessments in Fairfax County is $879.
ValueAppeal uses proprietary data mining technologies to evaluate the true value of each of the 342,000 Fairfax County residential properties, with the goal of helping homeowners reestablish a fair and equitable property tax assessment.
“With the dramatic decline in Fairfax County home values, homeowners know they are often paying too much in property taxes,” states Charlie Walsh, founder and CEO of ValueAppeal, “but the process for homeowners to take back what they’re owed is challenging and lengthy. ValueAppeal uses the most comprehensive data available, as well as a simple online tool to ensure the homeowners can reclaim what is owed to them, ” he said.
Historically, homeowners have been reluctant to file property tax appeals, even if they believe their homes are overassessed. ValueAppeal’s online service levels the playing field, by offering three unique arguments to support an accurate, compelling Fairfax County property tax appeal, including comparable sales, comparable assessments, and additional unique factors often overlooked by Fairfax County Assessors.
The company charges a nominal $99 fee for the service only if the data suggests a property is overassessed. In addition, the company refunds the fee if a customer is unsuccessful in their appeal. No other platform has the ability to provide property tax relief to such a wide range of homeowners in the crucial months leading up to to the appeal deadline.
