Property owners need to protest appraisals

Editor, the Advocate:
All young property owners - hear this: After seeing an increase in the value of my property, I encourage you to protest any property you or your parents own. This is most important.
These overinflated values will out-price your children from purchasing land, homes and business properties in the future. These extreme, high values are creating a "bubble" in the market, that will lead to more inequality of wealth.
You have until Friday to fill out your protest at the Victoria County Appraisal Office, located on Navarro Street and Airline Road, at the Pattie Dodson Health Center.
When I first opened my appraisal, I was thrilled that my property had increased by $70,000. After considering all the reasons for this being done, I realized this was just another manipulation that is being done to all of us.
Don't be fooled. Wake up.
