When you are considering buying a Spring Texas home, there are a couple of things you need to know about real estate taxes.
1. Tax Amount Without Exemptions – The real estate taxes identified on a home’s listing is BEFORE / WITHOUT exemptions. You may qualify for a homestead, over 65, or disabled exemptions. All of these exemptions will reduce your Spring Texas real estate taxes. How much lower the real estate taxes will be for a property depends upon the exemptions and its location.

2. Tax Rates may be the prior year’s rates – The current year’s tax rates are adopted around the September or October time frame of the tax year. The tax rates on real estate websites may reflect the prior year’s tax rates and not the current year’s tax rates. The tax rates vary from year to year.
3. Tax assessed value – The county appraisal district establishes the tax assessed value as of the first of the tax year. The taxes on real estate websites reflect the prior year’s tax assessed value until the current year’s tax assessed value is certified.

From the first day we met, we knew Jill was the Realtor we wanted to represent us on the sale of our home. I opened our front door, and there stood Jill with her hand extended, a warm smile and a “Hello Dee Dee”! She greeted my husband the same way. We immediately felt comfortable with Jill Wente.
Jill explained the selling process, reviewed the comparables, and outlined her strategy to sell our Spring Texas home for top dollar. She went through our house room by room with us to stage the home. Later she returned with staging accessories to finalize the transformation of our home into a product.
Jill and her photographer / videographer make a great team. The photos and videos of our house made us say "WOW" and we wanted to buy it instead of selling it. We know that Jill's strategic and professional marketing helped us sell our home for top dollar.
Jill Wente gave us sage financial advice throughout the entire sale of our home. An example of the sage advice was when Jill recommended to us not to overprice our home. She explained that overpricing increases days on market and decreases the final sales price. Jill Wente is one of the Top Negotiators in the Real Estate Business. She negotiated favorable terms for the sale our home and displayed her skills once again during the negotiations of repairs.
Gary Greene must be as honored and proud of Jill Wente, as we are. Look no further for a Spring Texas Realtor who shares her knowledge (I took plenty of notes), her sense of humor, and her persistence to leave her clients ecstatic. She far exceeded our expectations, and we are grateful for her expertise and guidance during the stressful time of selling our home. read less
