First off, there really is no huge disparity between commercial and residential property appraisals in Travis County. RECA conducted our own study. Unlike the study commissioned by the city and used to “prove” what the council already believed — we focused exclusively on comparing current appraisals and sales, in the current market. Between January 2014 and March of this year, the median residential property was assessed at 96.24 percent of its market value. The median commercial property? 93.10 percent.
