I found out recently after calculating the escrow
to taxes and insurances that the total they were charging did not match up.
Then I found out that they were creating an escrow cushion over $200 per month.
That makes our escrow over $1950 per mo which is expensive.
Is there a way to get them to drop their escrow cushion?
Imam trying to lower prop taxes but it is not instant.
I Previously lowered the prop tax by an appeal showing the under water value with a certified appraisal
to the county.
This time the county would not lower it and sent an inspector despite an appraisal and comparables.I dont know the outcome though he verbally acknowledged that the house is comparable to a knockdown just worth the land.
He is overinflating the value of the land.Fyi,
My wife and I are senior citizens.
I would apply for enhanced star prop tax deduction but the county will only rely on the prior years tax return when I had self employment income.
