Contesting Cuyahoga County Property Value: Filing A Real Property Appeal

At Fast Appraisals our team of certified residential appraisers provide appraisals for properties throughout Cuyahoga, Lorain, Lake, Medina, Summit, Portage, Geauga and Ashtabula that can be used to contest the county's property value. Each county has their own process for contesting tax assessed property valuation which can be found on our tax appeal appraisal page.

In Cuyahoga county, without evidence of a recent sale of the subject property, a party should be prepared to submit a formal written appraisal of the subject property. The appraisal must meet the following requirements:

  • Prepared by a qualified appraiser who must also testify before the Board of Revisions (BOR) or Board of Tax Appeals (BTA)
  • Performed for tax valuation purposes, and
  • Reflecting an opinion of value “as of” the tax lien date, i.e. January 1st of the year challenged
