Alex … I’ll take Homestead Exemption for …

Written by Joel Gerber. Posted in Homestead Exemption, Real Estate

Alex Trebek may know a lot, but even he could end up in jeopardy if he’s not careful when it comes to filing the Homestead Exemption. For those of you who are a Georgia resident, purchased a primary residence in 2018 (or have made a prior owned property your primary residence as of December 31, 2018) and that property is located in Bryan, Effingham, Liberty, Bulloch, Glynn, Long, McIntosh or Tattnall Counties, you are not in jeopardy and you should file for the Homestead Exemption. By filing for the Homestead Exemption, you will receive a reduction of your home’s assessed value each year going forward as long as you reside in the home as your primary residence.

To file for the Homestead Exemption in these eight counties you will need to bring your driver’s license (showing the new property address) and a January utility bill showing service in December 2018 to your respective county tax assessor’s office. The Homestead Exemption must be filed before April 1, 2019. You only need to file for the Homestead Exemption one time.

Wishing You A Sweet And Happy New Year!

The picture above just makes me happy! It reminds me of how many families I have had the privilege to help buy or sell a home. It reminds me of the most important thing about my job . . . the family-like relationships I have with the best Realtors in the business. I never thought I’d have a job that makes me feel the way I do every time I walk out of that room. It’s just pure happiness. Joy for the Realtors who have worked so hard to help another family, excitement for the lenders that have come through for their clients, and gratitude that I got to be a part of something so very special.
