Your report will identify exactly how much money any issues are costing you each year and walk you through the steps needed to fix them.

The Benefits of a Florida Homestead Check

Homestead Checks™ are becoming a standard process when buying or selling a home in Florida. When selling a home it will spot any valuation problems and show you how to maximize the amount of portability available to transfer to your next home. When buying a home it helps you file for Homestead correctly, bring over the maximum amount of portability from your previous home (if you had one), and identify all of the exemptions that you are currently eligible for.

Many people think that if they “file for Homestead” that they are covered and will get all of the savings that they should get. Unfortunately, this is for the most part not true

What Does a Homestead Check Look For?

FL Homestead Valuation Error Icon

Low Market Value

When the market value of your home on the tax rolls is significantly less than what your home is worth. If not corrected this will rob you of portability you can transfer to your next home.

FL Homestead Portability Icon

High Assessed Value

When the assessed value of your property on the county tax rolls is higher than the true market value of your home. This will result in your property being taxed at a higher rate than it should be.

FL Homestead Exemptions Icon

Missed Exemptions

Did you know that all senior citizens with an income under about $30k get another $50,000 exemption? There are dozens of additional property tax exemptions that you could be eligible for.

Current Portability

Calculates how much you have accumulated in Portability savings since filing for Homestead. Portability savings are capped at $500,000 and reduce the taxable value of your next home in Flordia.

Missed Portability

Have you owned more than one home in Florida? If the answer is "yes" then you have probably accumulated portability savings that are just sitting around waiting to be claimed by filing a simple form.

It's always a good idea to make sure that the $50,000 standard Homestead exemption is active on the county's property records. We search the current county records to make sure your Homestead is active.

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 $175. 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.

  • How long will it take to get my results report back?

    You can expect to get your Property Tax Analysis results back within 24 hours of placing your order. Some reports take more work than others to generate. If you do not see any results within 2 business days please contact us at

    support@floridahomesteadcheck.com

  • 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.
