"It's never been a fair fight! At the beginning of every VAB hearing, the property appraiser establishes his presumption of correctness. From that point on, Florida law says he's right and the homeowner is wrong! The deck is stacked against him from the very start!
The weakness in Florida's petitioning process is that the average homeowner is ill prepared to effectively argue his case. The homeowner does not understand what the law requires of him, he does not understand the valuation process, and he does not have the skill set, the training or the tools to effectively argue his case.
The homeowner is the rookie in the room and he's up against a highly skilled, veteran property appraiser with super computers and the best data on every property and sale in the county! It's a mismatch!
My seminar and presentation template levels the playing field. This is a "nuts and bolts" training seminar designed to provide the knowledge, training and tools a homeowner needs to effectively appeal his assessment.
I think it's time we part the clouds and cast a little sunshine on this process. Homeowners deserve some help and I'm going to give it to them!"
