We created the property tax analysis to make it easy to find out what you are eligible for and maximize your property tax savings.

What's A Homestead Check?

A Homestead Check™ is a property tax analysis that identifies errors with your homes taxable value, the amount of portability savings you have available, if Homestead is active on your property, and if you qualify for one or more of the 30+ exemptions. Your Florida Homestead Check™ report will identify exactly how much money any issues are costing you each year and walk you through the steps needed tp fix them.

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

Our founder, a Real Estate Attorney, created the property tax analysis to make it easy for Homeowners to maximize their tax savings without having to hire an attorney or spend months studying the laws and the exemptions they might be eligible for. We estimate that Floridians are paying $2500 a year too much on average.

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

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 $2,500/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 $100. 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.

Don't let your portability savings get hijacked!

Thinking of selling your home? There are two CRUCIAL things that need to be checked on ideally the year BEFORE you sell your home, or hard-earned “portability” savings will be wiped out at closing. And NO, your Realtor or your Title Agent will not spot these issues and tell you, unless they are doing business with us.
