Portability Transfer of Homestead Assessment Difference
Property owners with Homestead Exemption also receive a benefit known as the “Save Our Homes” cap. The Save Our Homes cap limits increases in the annual assessment of a home to a maximum of 3% regardless of the increase in Market Value.
Homeowners can transfer (or PORT) the difference between the assessed and market values from their previous Homestead Property (known as the Homestead Assessment difference) to another Homestead Property up to $500,000.
|Moving to a more valuable home - UPSIZING|
|Previous Home||New Home|
|Market Value||$250,000||Market Value||$400,000|
|Save Our Homes Assessment Difference||- $100,000||P O R T||- $100,000|
|Assessed Value||$150,000||Assessed Value||$300,000|
|Moving to a less valuable home - DOWNSIZING|
|Previous Home||New Home|
|Market Value||$250,000||Market Value||$200,000|
|Save Our Homes Assessment Difference||- $100,000||* P O R T||- $80,000|
|Assessed Value||$150,000||Assessed Value||$120,000|
*Step 1: Previous Save Our Homes Difference DIVIDED by Previous Market
100,000/250,000 = Cap Ratio 0.4
*Step 2: Cap Ratio MULTIPLIED by New Market Value
0.4 x 200,000 = PORT 80,000
Portability benefits may be reduced if the benefit is split among multiple homestead owners and is limited to $500,000.
