Regarding the Beaver County Property Reassessment

Lori Baden with eXp Realty shares some information regarding the Beaver County, PA property reassessment process and dates. All information to be verified by property owners.

The Beaver County Association of Realtors were addressed by county officials at a meeting last November and were provided some of the following “preliminary” info. All parties should verify for themselves or contact an Appraiser to assist them:

  • March 2023: Tyler Technology Property detail cards with new value will be mailed out.
  • There will be a 40 day window to file an appeal for value. NO tax info will be given at this time. Homeowners are to contact Tyler Technologies if there are property detail “discrepancies.” If property owner does not agree with value, they can file for an informal appeal. Same process as is currently in place. Instructions will be provided on card.
  • April 2023: Updated millage rates available and posted. (They have NOT YET been posted as of this blog writing on March 22nd, 2023).
  • July 1, 2023- Oct 31, 2023: Appeal hearing window for objections.
  • November 2023: Certified values finalized.|
  • 2024 – Payments for reassessed new taxes begin.

This new assessed value will also now be the market value and will be fixed. No changes can be made to assessed value unless the county reassesses again or a homeowner makes improvements that increase their value. Value will NOT change with new sales prices.

Beaver County’s assessment is revenue neutral. No new money is going into the budget. So this means that one third of the properties will increase in value, one third will stay the same, one third will go down.

Topics for appeal are current market value and uniformity with neighbors. No Realtors or Real Estate Licensees can accompany homeowners to hearing (as is the case now). Comps/current appraisals encouraged to support argument.

Market value will be determined based on sales and cost value approach from recorded sales between Jan 2018-and June 2022. A court order delayed the process due to inflated values during covid.

They are expecting approximately 12,000 appeals and need 30 people for 5 appeal boards. 5 boards will take turns hearing appeals during the July-Oct time frame. 2-3 days/week. Contact Joshua Eckleberger for more information.

Tax revenue can only be increased by a maximum of 10%. The reassessment will not be increasing tax revenue by more than that. Reassessment is revenue neutral, since budgets are already set.

Neighborhood delineations are a huge factor therefore 6th street in Beaver is not assessed the same value as River Rd and Patterson is not assessed the same as Beaver Falls, etc.

Clean and Green will stay intact but forest and agricultural values will be modified. Forest value will now depend on number of hardwoods/softwoods. Agricultural value will now depend on soil type.


Again, all parties should verify information for themselves with Beaver County, Joshua Eckelberger, and Tyler Technologies, or contact an Appraiser to assist them.

How’s the Lowcountry Market Doing?

Lori Baden with eXp Realty shares what the market is doing in the Lowcounty and the market reports for May 2021.

One of the most common questions I get is , “How’s the market?” As many of you know, it’s been crazy busy! Inventory is in short supply but the deals are still happening. I encourage buyers to be prepared and to be patient.

All of us are working harder than ever, to find your piece of paradise or even to sell it. Multiple offers and quick sales often come with lots and lots of extra paperwork and negotiating. It often entails more liability as well with disgruntled buyers who didn’t win in the multiple offer process.

The best strategy like is I said, is to be prepared (pre-approved) and to be patient. While we all know how important this process is to you and that you really want THAT home, it’s also best to treat it as it actually is: a business transaction. It’s also good to remember that many times, an even better home comes along right after that first one got away. As I say, “Everything happens for a reason, even if we don’t know why that is right now.”

A good attitude can go a long way, in making the process less stressful for everyone.

Here are the May monthly reports to look at how the market is doing in Hilton Head Island, Bluffton and Jasper County areas. I look at these every month and know what’s going on in our market. You can also email me at Lori@LoriBaden.com for specific neighborhood reports. Or call me at 843.505.3132. Let me know if I can put my expertise and 21 years of experience to work for you. It would be my pleasure!

Wormsloe

Lori Baden visits Wormsloe Historic Site in Savannah, GA

So I’ve lived here in the Lowcountry now nearly 8 years and just now finally made it to Wormsloe this past weekend.

It’s only 30 minutes away from my home, in the Coastal Empire in Savannah. And I’ve shared a few pictures on Facebook and Instagram but thought I’d share a few here too.

What a beautiful place full of history. For more information, history and location, please visit the Wormsloe Historic Site website at https://gastateparks.org/Wormsloe .

I highly recommend!

Reasons to celebrate…

It’s been a while and this will be short, but expect to see more posts from me soon, but I have lots of reasons to celebrate during these trying times.  I always try to focus on the positive and hope you are too.

I’m celebrating my daughter Hannah who graduated with honors amongst the chaos of Covid 19, from Belmont University and just moved to Nashville permanently to pursue a career in music business.

I’m celebrating the health of my son Jacob who is Charlotte and praying that he finds another job soon. He’s super smart and great at health and nutrition which a lot people need right now, so I’m hoping he’ll focus on that vs Food and Beverage.

I’m celebrating that my husband Joe has kept his job at Gulfstream so far, although he was switched to weekends. But that may not be an entirely bad thing…

Because… I’m celebrating that I’m now back in real estate sales full time vs being in a Broker or Management position. That means I’ll have my weekends free to work with you or someone you know.

I’m celebrating eXp Realty because even though they had to make some recent cutbacks, this model was built for this economic crises. We still have over 60 hrs of live training and networking per week!

I’m also celebrating that we now have over 28,000 agents that I can refer you to in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

Let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton/ Beaufort markets or if you need a great referral agent. 853.505.3132

And last but not least, I’m celebrating Mother’s Day weekend. It’s the hardest and best job I’ve ever had. I’m sure all of you will join me in that celebration!

I look forward to more celebrations with you.

Effort…

Do you recognize limitations or effort?

Sometimes it’s the little things that inspire me and really make me think.

Like seeing this little Eastern Box Turtle climbing our fence just a bit ago. He was trying SO hard in spite of his limitations and obstacles. I really admire his effort.

Whether it be your in your business, your relationships, or in yourself…. Do you see limitations and obstacles? Or do you see effort?

By the way, I rewarded this little guy’s effort by placing him in the thicker greener grass on the other side. He earned it. Maybe there is somebody’s effort you need to recognize too…

 

So I Did This Thing…

Find out why I’m no longer Lori Bee.

So in case you didn’t notice,  my name has changed.   Yes, that’s a good thing.  Actually, a great thing.   I got married on Black Friday, ending 47 years of Bachelorhood for my Joe.  LOL.

Signing the license and ending 47 years of Bachelorhood !

 

Actually, I’m the one that’s blessed… he waited 47 years to find “the one.”

We got married at home here in our barn. It was a gloriously beautiful fall day.  Just perfect.  I hope all of you will rejoice with us.  We are truly best friends, in love.

And as a side note, I’ve been crazily busy with work too.  Yes, I’m still in real estate. Still with eXp Realty.  It’ll be 4 years soon.  Since then we’ve grown from just over 1000 agents to 25,000+ nationally, and from 40 to well over 700 here in SC.  Production volume has grown from $90 million a year in 2017 to over $581 million here in SC, in 2019.  To say I’m proud, is an understatement! As Designated Managing Broker, I oversee operations in South Carolina for this wonderful company.

We have over 30 agents here locally to assist you, and I do referrals all the time.  Locally, statewide and nationally.  Let me know if I can assist you in finding your piece of paradise, like I’ve found mine.  It would be my pleasure.
