Thinking your paying too much in property taxes? You might be! I look up a lot of property taxes and find that most homes are selling for less than what the local assessors are saying they are worth. Perfect example would be a home I bought for $25,000, the home was NOT a forclosure and was on the market for 501 days before I purchased it. Yet the City of Kalamazoo says the property is worth $80,000! If that’s not over assessed I don’t know what is. This next seris of videos is going to walk you thru the process of disputing your property taxes. You only get one shot a year and its coming up here soon at the end of February. In this video I sit down with Alan Jeffries from Century 21 Advance Realty and talk the basics of what home owners need to know. Alan is a Level 3 Assessor in the State of Michigan and has been a licensed real estate agent for years!
One of the biggest myths out there is that you need a bunch of money to buy a house. That’s simply not true. There are a number of No and Low down payment options for home buyers. On top of that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to access many of those programs. During our next lunch and learn we will cover all the different options out there for buyers looking to minimize their down payment. Over the last couple years its been harder to get a lot of these types of offers accepted. However, with the market going back to a much more “normal” state it’s not nearly as hard as it was just a few short months ago. This is the perfect time for Realtors to reconnect with their past customers and get back out there looking. Come check out this lunch and learn and get a refresh course on low down payment options for buyers!
