Better late than never....
To properly answer your question about property tax increases in Murphy. Our 4 year re-evalution was done during the market high. Meaning our taxes increased due to the fact that our properties were evaluated at a higher value (inflated) in 2005. The Cherokee County Tax assessors office will do a review of your property with the proper paper work in January only. They are not giving any discounts for just showing up and a CMA may help with additional documents, but not likely. The one exception is a new appraisal of the property...if you are willing to pay for one and if it is worthwhile to you to do so. The County will re-evaluate again in 2012.
As far as our foreclosure market, as of today we have 66 foreclosure properties in our MLS inventory, these include conventional homes, mobiles, and vacant land. We do not have an area called Rolling Ridge. And for those of you that are not familiar with Davis Creek it is a rural road with a gorgeous trout stream that connects Cherokee County, North Carolina to Tellico Plains, Tennessee.
If you would like any more information feel free to call or email. Bonnie Smith, GRI, Broker email@example.com or 828-837-0277
Also, there are around 30 foreclosured homes in Murphy. Many in the Rolling Ridge community. Are you behind on your taxes? are you being foreclosed on? your question is a little confusing.
I'll be happy to help, but I need more information.
If you get your tax appraisal in the mail, usually there is a place you can dispute them. You go down to the county tax office and let them know your taxes keep going up, but not your property value, if that's the case. You will have to have documentation that your value isn't as high as they say.
You can click on our photo and get our contact information. Email me and I will be glad to look up the comparables in the area. I would need to know exactlly where your home is though. Address etc...
I hope this helps...
