In order to identify the unique characteristics of your property and the surrounding market area, we personally visit each property we represent – a service that is not typically provided by other firms in our industry. This also allows us to present personal testimony while negotiating on your behalf.
CTG thoroughly analyzes your property’s actual or potential performance, compares and contrasts it to market trends in rental rates, expenses, capitalization rates, vacancy, etc. and then carefully selects the most effective combination of the four main valuation approaches to arrive at our opinion of value:
Income Approach to Valuation
Market Sales and Lease Comparables
Cost Estimation Using Replacement Cost and Appropriate Depreciation Schedules
Equal and Uniform Analysis
We focus on individualized service. Our property tax team works closely with our clients to set goals and to provide the superior level of service our clients both expect and deserve. We speak with each of our clients to ensure that we are always up-to-date on the current status of their investment, and our clients know their tax consultant by name. In our experience, this level of personalized service is often the difference between an average reduction and an exceptional reduction – and Commercial Tax Group is in the business of delivering exceptional results.
Our proven track record is a direct result of our expert negotiating tactics and established business relationships with Appraisal Districts. Over the years, Commercial Tax Group’s team has earned the trust and respect of the appraisal districts, allowing us a strong competitive advantage.
In order to minimize risk for our clients and because we are confident in the quality of our services, we work on a contingency basis, with no fee earned if we are unable to secure a reduction.
On overvalued properties, we typically save our clients between 20%-25% in tax liability. We have found that our average net tax savings for our clients is much higher than that of other firms.
