2017 CPI and Save Our Homes

The property appraiser assesses all property at just value each year on January 1. When you acquire new real property, the assessed value of the property "resets" to equal the just (market) value.

If the new property owner has applied for and has been approved to receive the homestead exemption, the Save Our Homes cap is placed on the assessed value of the property the year after the property received the homestead exemption. This means that if the just value of the property increases, your next year assessed value cannot increase more than 3% or the Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichever is less. For 2017, the CPI is 2.1%.

If the property does not benefit from a homestead exemption, the assessed value increase is limited to 10% each year.
