Hi Pagano,

You'll need to review recent sales of similar properties in your neighborhood.  I'd check out the Larimer County Property Sales Search here: http://www.larimer.org/assessor/residential_sales.cfm

The Larimer County Website outlines how to appeal your valuation if you think it's too high.  You can also read some information here: How to Appeal your Larimer County Taxes.

A real estate professional can also provide you with comps of similar homes in your neighborhood, if you don't have one, I'd be happy to help.

Hope that helps!

Pagano,

 As every Judicial laws are different in every state, tax law differs from the state to state, and county to county, and so on... 

What I am doing for my clients is to run the neighborhood comps for the tax year (for the year 2011, Tax Assessor  uses 2010 comps) then file an informal appeal. They will get back to me in next few weeks about their idea of property value, if my client disagrees, then we have an option to file a formal appeal.

Just like any other business, search for your local real estate expert and go from there.

Regards,

Albert
