We survived the hearing, and came out ahead. Yippee! They decreased our assessed value by about $17,800, so we're pretty happy about that. The Assessor's rep was kind of bowled over by the BOR guy after our response to their comps (1 of which was actually invalid). It didn't really seem like they were prepared for the hearing, and the BOR guy (sorry, can't remember his name) pretty much dismissed their comps and focused on ours. My only regret is that I didn't request an even lower assessment on my appeal form, since they gave me exactly what I had asked for. But, after what I learned of the process this year, I will be that much more prepared to do it again next year. I can't thank you enough for all of your expertise and assistance.
