assessed value vs apraised value should i be concerned?


i received my property tax bill (livingston Parish) and my assessed property value had dropped almost 15000 dollars.

should i be concerned about actual value dropping this much or enjoy this decreased bill?

the original 10 or so home in my sub where built at a higher premium higher quality then the remaining lots about 30 where sold to Thompson home builders and they built very low quality houses and sold them for 10-12 grand less than what the original 10 or so paid. lower quality meaning plastic counter tops, particle cabniets 80% siding 20% brick. i have been worried about value drop for some time as id really like to sell my house and upgrade since me and the wife have a baby on the way.

sorry if tl;dr

I'm not sure about your exact situation, but I know in a lot of cases the appraised value and the assessed value have absolutely nothing at all to do with each other. In many cases, the actual selling price of a home for sale has nothing to do with either as well.
Example, a friend of mine just bought a house in Ft. Collins for $225,000. It appraised for $230,000 but the tax assessor assessed it for $179,000.

ETA: What are other houses in your neighborhood selling for? The ones that are most like yours? That would be the best way to judge what your home is worth imo

Same situation here.... I got my house appraised a month ago and it increased about 30k from two years ago... don't sweat it... enjoy the decreased taxes.....

And to even muddy it some more, my neighbors received letters from Taylor's office earlier in the year stating large increases.....

assessed value doesn't determine your homes value...

also in LP i believe they reassess every 4 years... with this year being a reassessment year... I think its safe to say that, across the board, values have dropped over the last 4 years...

enjoy your cheaper taxes! nothing to worry about.

The entire neighborhood was started in 2008. Only 1 original house has been put for sale but its fsbobr for about 7 grand over what we all paid back in 08/09. It's only been listed for 2-3 months. No hits. Many of the more recent houses here sold for 10-15 g less than what the original 10-12 paid.
