Still Time to Get Answers About Your New Assessment

58WalworthsnowWe stopped by the Scarsdale Congregational Church to chat with representatives from Tyler Technologies who are conducting meetings with residents who have questions about their new assessments following the revaluation. If you have questions, now is the time to make an appointment to meet with them. You do not need a lawyer and you can state your case as to why you believe your home may not be properly assessed. Tyler will also show you comparable properties that were used to value your home. They will be in Scarsdale until April 26 during the following hours:

Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5 pm
Monday and Wednesday from 6 pm - 8 pm
Saturdays from 11 am - 4 pm

You can make an appointment for a meeting with Tyler Technologies at Scarsdale Congregational Church by calling 722-1324, between 9 and Monday through Friday. All informal review meetings will be held in the basement-level offices of the Scarsdale Congregational Church at 1 Heathcote Road and residents are asked to park across the street.

With the lack of transparency being shown in how the Village of Scarsdale and Tyler Technologies' revaluation figures resulted in putting such a high increase on specifically the land value in Scarsdale, the following is something Scarsdale residents might want to consider. Residents can obtain through the Scarsdale Village Hall public records under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), how many homes were sold in 2013 to builders for demolishing and rebuilding vs. homes sold to private individuals for intent of living in existing homes.

So the challenge with the records is that you cannot tell what the outcome is on most of the homes demolished. However, here is a total (keeping in mind some homes appear twice for demo and rebuild):
Demo and rebuild = 3 / Demo only = 21 / Partial demo (no rebuild) = 6

It is probably a fair assumption that the 21 demolished will eventually receive a permit for a rebuilding. So let’s say 24 in total for 2013. The records list all the sales which total 382 (some appear twice so they were only counted as once). The tricky part is that there is carryover in years. So for the list of demo’s for 2013, only a portion show as purchased in 2013 as they could have been purchased in 2012 and the permits filed in 2013. Likewise there are probably builders purchasing homes on the list in 2013 that the permit requests will appear in 2014
.
But allowing for assuming the same carryover from year to year, it could be said that of 382 sales, 24 were for the intent of demolishing and rebuilding. This represents 6.3% of the sales in 2013. So the question begs, how can the town and Tyler Technologies place so much weight on the land portion of the assessment that is driven by builders’ intent to demolish homes when this represents only 6% of homes sold in Scarsdale? Put another way, with 94% of homes sold to private individuals for the intent of living in the existing homes, then it appears necessary to assume this is the likely buyer demographic and the assessments should be made with more weighting on the home and less on the land given the intent to live in and retain the home.

Now that the Scarsdale revaluations numbers for residents have been recorded it's apparent the enormous increase is for the land. This is catering not to the community but to outside builders to come in and tear down our houses to make huge profits. Scarsdale Village Hall, shame shame shame!!!
