Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
How much money can a Property Tax Analysis save me?
That depends on a bunch of factors, which is why a Property Tax Analysis is so important! We find an average savings of around $2,000/per year for our customers. Many of our customers have achieved the portability cap of $500,000, which equates to $10,000 per year in property tax savings! The savings aren't just a one-time thing either, you will continue to benefit from them every year that you live in your home. We will also walk you through maximizing your Portability savings to transfer to your next home in Florida.
How much does a Property Tax Analysis cost?
A Property Tax Analysis by Florida Homestead Check™ is only $250. Our goal was to make an easy to use tool for maximizing property tax savings at an affordable price. The only alternative until now for savvy homeowners has been to hire a Real Estate Attorney to help you research your Homestead situation and determine which exemptions you qualify for, how much Portability you have available, whether your market or assessed values were correct, and how to maximize your Portability savings.
Why haven't I needed to get one in the past?
Besides the dozens of exemptions, the most important areas to find additional savings are focused around Portability. Portability was passed into law in 2008 to help prevent homeowners from being "trapped" in their Homesteaded homes that now had favorably low property taxes. This was during the great recession where homes throughout Florida were at their lowest and there wasn't enough Portability savings at the time to be useful. Now that the values of homes have risen back up, and continue to climb, there are hundreds of thousands of accumulated Portability savings that Homeowners can transfer to their next home. Unfortunately, most people don't know this or understand how to maximize it to take full advantage of the law.

When should I get a Property Tax Analysis?
Every Floridian that owns a "Homestead Property" can benefit from a Property Tax Analysis whether they already own their home, are buying a new home, or are selling their current home. It is most important though for home sellers that are planning to buy another home in Florida. There are several things that need to be checked and addressed BEFORE closing otherwise some savings can be permanently wiped out.
If my report comes back showing problems what should I do?
Our goal is to explain to you how to fix any problems identified in your Homestead Check™ on your own. Your report will outline problems with your property tax bill and exactly how much they are costing you each year, as well as provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to fix them. However, we understand that sometimes you may just not have the time or desire to do so. If you have question or want us to fix your problems for you then contact the Homestead Counselors™ or the Homestead Doctors™ for help.
