Lyons Township 2019 Assessment Notices Mailed
The Cook County Assessor’s office mailed 2019 property assessment notices to Lyons Township property owners on Monday, May 20th. The following cities, towns, and villages are in Lyons Township: Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Brookfield, Burr Ridge, Countryside, Hickory Hills, Hinsdale, Hodgkins, Indian Head Park, Justice, La Grange, La Grange Highlands, Lyons, McCook, Pleasantdale, Ridgewood, Riverside, Summit, Western Springs, and Willow Springs. The one month window to appeal your 2019 assessed value is now open until the deadline of June 21st.
We recommend homeowners review their assessments annually and appeal each year if there is a strong evidence based argument that their home may not be assessed fairly. Lyons Township’s next triennial reassessment is scheduled for 2020. However, if you feel that your assessment is not fair there is no need to wait to appeal, you have the option to appeal every year at the Assessor’s office and at the Board of Review. If you’d like a second opinion on your property’s assessed value as it compares to similar homes in your neighborhood contact us for a free, no obligation, review and analysis of your home.
Property values in the Chicagoland area do not stay the same every year. They change frequently, as ownership changes, as homes are remodeled, and as new properties are constructed. Don’t make the mistake of only appealing during your property’s reassessment year.
If you contact us before the June 21st deadline we would be happy to review your home’s assessment against the current values of nearby comparable properties and provide our professional opinion on whether or not an appeal makes sense this year.
