Opportunity is Knocking

The Greek word for opportunity is Kairos. Kairos is a measure of time that is fleeting.Kairos was a god the had hair growing out of his forehead and was bald on the rest of his head. Mythology tells us that he was elusive and if anyone wanted to catch Kairos, they needed to grab him by the hair as he was facing you. If you did not grab his hair while he was facing you or running toward you, you could not get him after he passed.

We find this same scenario in the real estate market. Would you like to seize the day? Kairos is staring you in the face, will you grab the opportunity before you? Call me at 972-896-8046 today and take advantage of the home selling market!

Whether you live in Forney, Talty, Rockwall, Heath, Royse City, Fate or Greenville, don't let opportunity pass you by!

Rockwall Homes Appraised Value Increase and Tax Implications

Yesterday’s mail delivered many Rockwall and Heath home owners a surprise as they saw an increase in their homes appraised value.  This is great news for those who are looking to sell their home, but what about the home owners who are not planning to move anytime soon?  Many home-owners are upset by the sudden increase due to the impact it will have on their yearly tax bill, however there is something that can be done.  The professionals at The Jessica Hargis Group can help you explore your options so you don’t have to worry come tax season!

Appraisers ultimately have the last word, but the decision isn’t always set in stone.  Appraisers will consider input from homeowners who are refinancing or by using comps provided by a real estate agent using the latest home sales.

Valuing a home isn’t an exact science but making sure the appraiser is as objective as possible by carefully plotting the prices of similar, nearby homes is an important step.  Using a reputable realtor with this step is of the utmost importance.  The Jessica Hargis Group has the tools and know how to help you assess your home value and place you on the right path for whatever your needs.

The median price of homes that sold in Rockwall, Texas is just over $263,000.  An increase of 10% can mean as much as much as an additional $1000 more per year in taxes.  According to Appraisal District Guide appraised values may not increase the appraised value of a homestead by more than 10% in a given tax year. The homeowner's property tax is based on the county appraisal district's appraised value of the home. Technically, a Texas homestead's assessed value is limited to the lesser of either its market value or the sum of the market value of any new improvements and 110% of the appraised value of the preceding year. The 10% increase is cumulative. Therefore, the maximum increase is 10% times the number of years since the property was last appraised.

As unpleasant as it sounds, summer is the season in Texas to fight property tax appraisals.  As the saying goes; March Rains bring April Appraisals and May Protests.  The deadline to file a protest is June 1, 2015.

Whether you are buying or selling a home in the Dallas or Ft. Worth area or would like to discuss your appraisal with a real estate professional; you will need a realtor you can trust and who puts your family’s needs first.  For more information about Jessica Hargis or The Jessica Hargis Group, visit or contact one of her team of friendly experts at 214.304.6068.
