Assessment Error and Chicago Property Tax Appraisers

The Cook County Assessor's Office uses a complicated mass appraisal process to estimate property value for the hundreds of thousands of properties in Cook County. Because of the many properties, and the complexity of the process, it is no surprise that mass appraisal sometimes results in over or under assessment. Assembling the data necessary takes time and relies heavily upon historical data. In rapidly appreciating markets under assessments are more likely to occur. In declining markets, the possibility of an over assessment becomes more likely. In many areas, sales transaction volume is so low that assessment valuation errors are more frequent. Many Chicago and Cook County property owners are shocked to see assessments rising when they know their property values have actually declined. Chicago Commercial Appraisal Group's Property Tax Appraisers can help determine if those assessments are fair. Clients using our appraisals have had exceptionally high success rates in reducing property assessment levels.

Chicago Property Tax Appraisals and Tax Increases

Cook County and Chicago property taxes have been taking an ever-increasing bite out of the property owner's wallet. Property taxes have generally been increasing at rates far exceeding inflation for many years. While real estate taxes are a fact of life, Cook County property owners should not have to pay more than their fair share. In some cases, this may require a Property Tax Appraiser to help establish what the equitable fair market value for a specific property is.
