Get Your Property Tax Analysis By Florida Homestead Check
A lot of money is at stake when you are buying or selling a home. Most people think that "filing for Homestead" is all there is to it, but the laws offer much more in tax savings that go unclaimed. A property tax analysis will ensure that you get all of the savings available under the law.
Florida Homestead Check For Homeowners
What's A Homestead Check?
There is a lot to know about the property tax savings aspects of the Homestead laws. Many people think that if they “file for Homestead” that they are covered and will get all of the savings they should. This is for the most part not true. To receive benefits you must properly file for them and it is not all handled in one filing. Also, things do not stay the same from year to year. We created the property tax analysis to make it easy for Florida homeowners to maximize their Homestead Savings and minimize their tax bill.
Your Florida Homestead Check™ analyses 4 very important things about your Homestead property
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?
How A Property Tax Analysis Works

We estimate that Floridians are paying $2500 a year too much on average.
