Texas Homeowner? Don’t Miss the Opportunity for Savings

 

It’s the beginning of another new year, and we want to remind you that Texas law includes the Homestead Exemption, which allows a partial exemption from local property taxes for your primary residence.

 

Applications for property tax exemptions are filed with your local appraisal district. The general deadline for filing an application is April 30.

 

The Application for Residential Homestead Exemption is available here. A list of appraisal district addresses and phone numbers is available here.

Home Sales Up Again


 

After a modest decline nationwide in August, existing-home sales bounced back in September to their highest annual pace of the year, according to a just-released report from the National Association of Realtors. All major regions of the country except the Midwest experienced gains.

 

Single-family home sales rose 2 percent in September over August, but are 1.9 percent below the pace a year ago. Nationwide, the median single-family home price was $210,300, up 5.9 percent from September 2013. In Dallas-Fort Worth, that number was $185,000, up 9.3 percent.
