Buyer
Beware

When buying real estate property, do not assume property taxes will remain the same. A change in ownership may reset the assessed value of the property to full market value, which could result in higher property taxes. Please use our Tax Estimator to approximate your new property taxes.

The Property Appraiser does not send tax bills and does not set or collect taxes. Please visit the Tax Collector's website directly for additional information.

The Homestead Exemption saves property owners thousands of dollars each year. Do not jeopardize your Homestead by renting your property.

Before buying real estate property, be aware that non-ad valorem assessments may have a significant impact on your property tax bill.

Watch out for false quitclaim deeds

There are new reports that scammers are filing fake quitclaim deeds. Unfortunately, these schemes have increased over the past few years. The thieves are preying on property owners and transferring the title to themselves and/or companies, which in turn sell the property, leaving the rightful property owner homeless. Stay vigilant and monitor the Property Search frequently for any changes in ownership.

If you think you have been a victim of deed fraud, visit the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts website for more information.  

Beware of rental scams

A recent report revealed that the Miami-Dade Police Economic Crimes Bureau has been investigating a large amount of "squatter brokers." These scammers are posing as property owners or managers and renting a property they have no legal rights over. Then renters/lessees will get caught up in this fraudulent scheme.

Remember to protect yourself and your money from thieves. Check our Property Search to confirm the listed owner of a property.
