Flatirons
The Outlook From Here

County tax assessors have sent their property valuations - and as we've seen, the valuations  are aggressive. This is confounding because during the study period for tracking values (July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2012), the median price of single family homes in Boulder County was up only 3.3%, and the median price of condos/townhomes was down 3.4%. The new valuation is a starting point for calculating your property taxes for the next two years. If you think your assessment is inaccurate, you have until June 3 to appeal. Take these steps first:

 

Make sure the assessor's objective information is accurate.

Check the square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms.  

 

Investigate subjective comparables.

It's not uncommon for the assessor to base value on unsuitable comparable properties.
If you think this may be the case, call me. I can assemble a better set of comps for you.

De-Clutter for Spring

Many times I meet with clients who are ready to make a change (relocate, downsize, retire, invest), but find themselves  hostage to piles of stuff. The good news? Lots of good organizations could really use your stuff, and they will come and get it for free. Setting a once-a-month pick up provides a deadline to keep clutter moving out the door. Easily arrange pick ups and choose a charity through the web site  Donation Town
