I was just curious how many of you live in areas where the assessed value is higher than you can appraise a property. Ten years ago, this never happened. But, for the last few years we have had areas where the tax assessed value is higher than our appraised value. One county (Denton) is consistantly higher in the thriving cities. That is a great phone call to receive. "How can you say my home is worth $xxx,xxx, even the county thinks it is worth more!" "Well, the ten sales of the same plan that sold in your addition in the past six months only reflect my value. We don't let the assessed value affect our outcome." It is to the point that it is not worth appraising in certain cities (Lewisville, etc) even though they are "cookie cutter" because the endless headaches caused by the appraisal district.
