    Property taxes are expensive, and with the fall in housing prices across the nation, your taxes are more likely than ever to have been assessed unfairly in relation to other homes in your area. startup-architecture-va-resultsThat can add up to hundreds and thousands of dollars in overpayment each year–and the problem is, most people won’t see a refund unless they speak up.

    We architected a service that allows people to simply enter their address and we analyze and make a suggested evaluation on a fair tax evaluation.

    If the user chooses to move on there is a series of tools they use to select their comparables and create their argument.property-records-va-comps

    Save On Your Property Taxes – web development

    March 20th, 2009 | | | | | | | |

    Value Appeal Comparables

    Switch Development and ValueAppeal have partnered up to provide a quick and easy way for home owners to evaluate whether or not their property tax valuations are accurate. We believe homeowners are at a disadvantage when it comes to challenging their property tax valuations. ValueAppeal levels the playing field by providing and analyzing property data so our customers don’t have to.

    The technology searches public records and finds comparable homes to yours that sold for less than your assessment. Then it helps the user define the appropriate information and evidence to submit an appeal. We expect an Alpha release in early May.

    AT&T U-verse – Yahoo Maps API

    February 27th, 2009 | | | |

    uverse yahoo maps APILeveraging the Yahoo Maps API we created a zip code look up tool to analyze AT&T U-verse coverage for individuals. Because we needed full zip codes (i.e. 98101-3232), and most people do not know their zip+4, we used the Yahoo API to have it normalize the address. This allowed us to effectively guage coverage at a smaller fidelity.

    The service is only available to internal teams however we would be more than happy to show a demo in person.
