Summary for Cameron County CAD 2024 Property Tax Revaluation
Cameron County property owners are dealing with significant increases for both residential and commercial properties. Reported increases were somewhat less for Cameron County than for the Harlingen metro area.

For commercial real estate, the gains were significant. Market trends for commercial real estate have been difficult for some and downright unpleasant for others. Most commercial property owners would probably concede in private that the value of their properties has decreased over the last several years. Interest rates rising from 1.71% in January 2022 to 4.05% in January 2024 is partly to blame for this. It is also a result of somewhat flat revenue patterns combined with significant and ongoing increases in casualty insurance and other operational costs.
