AVS represents the owners, managers and developers of some of the largest portfolios of commercial property in California. In the Bay Area, AVS also represents owners of high-value residential properties. Many of our commercial clients own or manage properties throughout the United States and internationally. They have engaged AVS to represent them with respect to their California holdings; some also utilize the services of certain of our affiliated providers in other jurisdictions. They have come to realize that a single point of contact can lead to a world of tax savings.
AVS has extensive experience in each phase of the real estate value cycle. We have negotiated new assessments in rising markets for high-profile properties transferred as part of multi-jurisdiction acquisitions and mergers – frequently achieving individual assessed values that total less than the aggregated purchase price. In both rising and stable markets, we have diligently monitored course of construction and completed construction assessments to ensure that only the legally permissible, non-exempt value of new improvements is subjected to taxation. Of course, we have actively pursued reductions in assessed values during market downturns, at times without having to pursue a formal appeal. In each phase of the market cycle, AVS draws upon its experience, market knowledge and credibility with assessing officials gained in earlier phases.
Owners and managers must actively monitor their property tax assessments. In both volatile and stable real estate markets, inaction is a silent tax that costs property owners and managers (and their tenants) millions of dollars annually. AVS is the premier advisor to knowledgeable participants in the California commercial property marketplace. They have chosen us because of our commitment to providing clients with experienced, innovative and trustworthy property tax advice and advocacy, year after year.
