Michigan property taxes

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423

This is an old blog from 2008 about Michigan property taxes and that you should look into reducing them.  It still pays to check every few years about how high they are and whether you can reduce them.

I am going to hammer this point over and over this month to people living in Southeastern Michigan.  If you have bought a home in Southeastern Michigan  (metro Detroit area) in the last 8 years you need to be thinking about fighting your taxes.  Michigan Home values have dropped!!!!  You may be overpaying property taxes.  I have an uncle that is a elected official in a city.  He made a comment to me that one western Wayne County city lost $1,000,000 in tax revenue last year at the local board of review.  That means a lot of people were able to reduce their taxes last year.  You definitely need to be checking your tax bill and finding out what homes are selling for in your area.

For more on fighting Michigan property taxes  feel free to go to my website http://www.russravary.com/ and find out the steps you need to take to reduce property taxes in Michigan Lots of great information for buyers and sellers in Michigan whether it is Wayne county real estate, Oakland county real estate, Livingston county real estate, or Washtenaw county real estate.  

It doesn't matter if it is lake real estate in Southeastern Michigan or a home in Commerce Township you always should check every few years whether you can reduce your taxes.  I hope that this helps you save money over the years.  Every penny I can help you save is money that you can spend elsewhere.  Have a great day.  Russ Ravary

Russ, I'll go check out your site, but honestly I have helped and sent many clients in 2 cities and 2 townships our there to the Board of Review, with data, comps etc... and nothing. One couple paid 424 on a house that sold a year ago for 525, sorry...they would not reduce the taxes. 

I hate it...I thought our taxes were to be based on the sale price. What a mess.
