The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

The good of course is Team Savoie, your local real estate professionals. The bad is the current state of the economy. I say current because it will get better. I know there are some that would have you believe that the economy is and will forever be terrible. In respect to real estate, if you're a buyer and planning to own the property for more than a couple of years then buy everything you can! The ugly can be property taxes. I say can because yours may not be as bad as you think. First, if your property is still damaged from Hurricane Katrina, then write to the parish tax assessor for an exemption. Second, if your property value has dropped or if you've bought a property that has decreased in value, then again write to the tax assessor. Go to www.stassessor.org for information on how taxes are assessed, important dates such as our next public meeting, and property value search option. You can check your own property taxes under the property value page. Remember that property taxes are public information and you have the right to dispute yours if you feel it's necessary. Owning real estate is at the heart of the American dream. We want all your real estate experiences to be good.
