Property appraisal after renovation

2 Replies


I am new to flipping and would like to know if I should ask the county for a new appraisal after I finish renovations and before I sell the property. I understand that this will increase taxes on the buyer and they don't like it, but also some buyers will look at the old appraisal in the county page and will think that I am asking too much compared with the county assessment. However, the buyer will face the new assessment after purchase anyway.

Therefore, I would like to know if it is in my interest to call the county and ask for appraisal before posting the property for sale?

Don't waste your time trying to get it reassessed by the county.

Put together a list of all of the improvements you made to the property and give it to your realtor, so the improvements can be included in the listing.
