Not for banks! This is a bit of an unusual request. I'm about ready to publish a new book on "How to Reduce Your Property Taxes" (both print and ebook). One of my recommendations in the book is that an excellent source of data for your tax challenge is a knowledgeable Realtor in the area. Just from preliminary promotion of the upcoming publishing, I have been asked repeatedly how to find the right Realtor to do this and what will it cost.
So it seemed like this would be the best place to establish a national network of experienced agents, willing to perform a "market analysis" similar to a BPO but with the purpose of providing the property owner with good solid information to mount their challenge. Depending upon your local market a fee to do this might run from $75 to $150. If the property owner's initial challenge is denied and they ultimately end up in front of a Valuation Adjustment Board or similar entity, there could be additional income opportunities for you to appear and testify at a hearing. (solid gold on your background resume if you have testified as an expert).
I believe there are property taxes in all 50 states, so I think we will need agents from all 50 states. If this is something you would be interested in doing, please send me an email with a brief summary of experience and cities and counties in your state you would be interested in covering.
Thank you in advance for your interest.
