Join Valcre on May 11th for a presentation on Property Tax Appeals: What, Why, and How

Given the current real estate market now is a great time to submit a property tax appeal to help your clients reduce their property tax bill. In this webinar we’ll cover how to do that for retail, and commercial properties, including, but not limited to senior living facilities, hotels or apartments, and commercial office space.

SAN DIEGO (MAY 11th, 2023) — Given the slowdown in commercial real estate, specifically in the medium to large commercial office space category, there has never been a better time to help your clients reduce their tax bill by appealing the property tax bill on their properties. 

With this in mind, Valcre, the premier valuation software for the commercial real estate industry, which is used to create over 50,000 commercial real estate appraisals annually, worth more than $50 billion across five countries, is partnering with Appraisal Buzz to deliver a presentation on May 11th, at 10AM Pacific / 1PM Eastern time titled: “Property Tax Appeals: What, Why, and How.”

“Property tax appeals can be complicated – in this webinar we hope to teach you the foundations that will allow you to do property tax appeals successfully,” said Grant Norling, MAI, VP Client Experience, and Co-Founder of Valcre. “Valcre is committed to helping both commercial appraisers and property owners reduce their property tax bill by helping to provide the best tools and services possible to achieve a favorable outcome from a property tax appeal.” 

“Property taxes are the single largest line item operating expense for property owners, and as such we want to do everything we can to minimize that expense,” said Ross Litkenhous, Founder & CEO of Taxonics and Managing Partner at Calvary Real Estate Advisors. “With over 11 million commercial properties in the United States, and fewer than 2,500 full-time real estate tax consultants working in the United States today, and more and more commercial appraisal professionals retiring each day, tax appeal valuation presents a huge opportunity for appraisers who want to get into this space.”

During this webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • What a property tax appeal consists of
  • Why a property owner might want to perform one
  • And how to do it effectively to save your client’s money

Hear from Valcre’s Grant Norling, MAI, VP Client Experience and Co-Founder, and Ross Litkenhous, Founder & CEO of Taxonics and Managing Partner at Calvary Real Estate Advisors, to learn more about how to help your clients reduce their expenses given the state of the commercial real estate market.
