Are Denver Property Taxes on the Rise?

Today, I’m going to walk you through some of the property tax notices that you’ve probably received through the mail recently. What exactly is going on with these property value assessments?

Across the Denver area, properties have gone up in value. The recent assessments are from July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2014. This means that the numbers you see aren’t the current values. Because these assessments don’t tell you what your home’s current value is, you can’t use it to price your home in the current market.

Property taxes are going up, but that’s only because your home is worth more! The next assessment you’ll get is not until 2017, so the assessment you have now is what will determine your taxes until then. If you have any questions about what these property assessments mean for you, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, give us a call or shoot us a quick email. We would love to hear from you!
