Ventura County Beach House

The subject property is a typical beach home in the Malibu area of Ventura County. Sitting right on the beach, this property is not your typical tract home. In putting together a case for reduction, we found that there were simply no sales of similar properties in the area, or in the same situation. What few existed did not compare. This would have been enough to make the individual taxpayer throw up their hands and forget the appeal altogether. However, as we say throughout our website, we won’t stop until we believe the assessment is fair; and when the conventional methods don’t provide result – we think outside the box.
And so, preparing a case based solely on listings of comparable homes, we were able to achieve a reduction from $3,100,000 to $2,150,000 saving the homeowner over $10,000 for the year! Had we simply looked over available sales to determine if there was a case, the taxpayer would have been out that money; instead, we file the application for changed assessment to secure our right to prove our case and take the extra time to save our clients the most possible.
