What Homestead Monitoring™ Looks For
Market Value and Assessed Value Errors
Did you know that the Market Value on the tax rolls is usually way lower than it should be? This is a serious problem! It robs homeowners of valuable Portability that they can transfer to their next home in Florida. If your home’s market value is low you need to get it adjusted on the tax rolls BEFORE closing.
The "Save Our Homes" Exemption
It's hard to believe, but 30% of eligible Homeowners in Florida forget to file for Homestead! We have even seen cases where a Homeowner thought the had their standard Homestead exemption in place but it had been removed from the tax records in error or by accident.
Unclaimed Portability Savings
Portability allows you to transfer your accumulated Homestead Savings to your next home. Most people do not file for portability! That means that valuable portability savings are still sitting there waiting to be claimed. They can be claimed any time before you sell the current home by just filing one simple form! Your Property Tax Analysis will identify if you have Portability available from your former Homestead and exactly how much is available.
30+ Additional Homestead Exemptions
Sure there’s the $50,000 standard exemption, but there are dozens more. Did you know that moving parents or grandparents into a Granny Flat can save up to 20% of the property tax bill? Did you know that all senior citizens with income under about $30k get another $50,000 exemption? Did you know that some senior citizens are completely exempt from having to pay property taxes?

Answers To Frequently Asked Questions
How much money can a Property Tax Analysis save me?
That depends on a whole bunch of factors which is why a Property Tax Analysis is so important! We find an average savings $2,500/per year for our customers but we've seen many customers hit their 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 see these savings every year that you live in your home. We will also show you how to maximize your Portability savings to transfer to your next home in Florida.
How much does Homestead Monitoring cost?
Homestead Monitoring provides you with a yearly Property Tax Analysis at a discounted cost of $75. Our goal was to make the Property Tax Analysis affordable and available to all Floridians. The only other alternative until now for savvy homeowners has been to hire Real Estate Attorney to help you research your Homestead situation in order determine which exemptions you qualify for, how much Portability you are eligible for, whether your market or assessed values were correct, and how to maximize your Portability savings for significantly more money.
Why haven't I needed to get one in the past?
Besides Homestead Exemptions the most important aspects of the Homestead laws that provide additional savings are Portability. Portability was passed into law in 2008 in order to help keep homeowners from being "trapped" in their long term homes that had been Homesteaded and had favorably low property taxes. After the great recession that year the values of homes throughout Florida were at their lowest. There weren'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.
