If you have in the past, that is a surprise as only real estate professionals can post on Trulia. You should try Zillow.

Most leases require more notice than what you've indicated you provided. Read your lease and the landlord tenant law for your state to know your rights & responsibilities.

If you feel comfortable appealing on your own, there is a form on the Yancey County Tax Assessor's web site that you can use to appeal your taxes for 2014. Of course, they are going to ask you to give them some information to support your belief that the assessed value that they have applied to your property is higher than it should be. However, it's not as difficult to get this information as some might believe and there are a couple of sources that you can use. One would be find comparable sold properties on a site such as this one. Another option would be to have a broker in your area do a comparative market analysis on your property for a small fee. This would give you a wider source of sold properties and is similar to an appraisal, though not as in depth. Of course, the best support would be a complete appraisal of your property, but most people are not willing to pay $450 +/- for an appraisal just to have their taxes reduced...

I own property in another state and wanted to appeal the assessed value on that property. I was successful in getting the assessed value reduced based on the market analysis that I was able to get from a local broker and was very happy with the results.

I hope that this helps and wish you the best of luck.

The market is there, just not at the prices that they are currently being offered at. Incentives might help, but you must get exposure on the MLS and various web sites to improve your chances. Choose a realtor that is a member of the Asheville Board of Realtors. ... more

it depends on whether the property is in a subdivision or not. Typically there is a 15+ foot setback restriction.
