This merger now affords for Health Care Advisory Group to become a division of McCollum Consulting working solely in the Senior Housing Industry. The merger creates the largest property tax advocate in the Texas market and one of the largest in the United States.
Market Value for Realty
Our focus is all types of real property tax issues, with expertise in complex property valuations where licenses, trademarks and going concern value must be separated from the real and personal property valuations for property assessments. We also continue to maintain the latest software to address the assessment process for uniform and equal assessment under state laws.
Health Care Advisory Group
For 28 years we have successfully represented portfolio clients for special use properties such as senior care residences, assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation hospitals as well as other types of health care properties. McCollum Consulting is the largest representative for Skilled Nursing Facilities in the state of Texas and we represent properties in 17 other states. We have established contacts and rapport with most of the major appraisal districts in the 254 counties in Texas. We have an extensive database with a unique, proprietary valuation and presentation methodology which far surpasses that of any other firm.
EquAL AND UNIFORM ASSESSMENT
Equal and uniform assessment is a provision allowed under the property tax code of Texas, as well as many other states. The term is typically referred to as equity. McCollum Consulting utilizes assessors and appraisal districts data to ensure the client pays only their fair share of the property tax burden in an equitable fashion.
Property Tax Consulting
McCollum Consulting gathers information from the client, as well as information and data from the appraisal district or assessor, combined with expert knowledge of the real estate market, to quickly identify over-assessed properties. Based on this analysis, McCollum Consulting initiates negotiations with the appropriate taxing entities, filing necessary protests on the client’s behalf. When favorable information is discovered, we obtain reductions on approximately 85% of the protests filed, first reducing values to market, and second, to equity.
