Key Developments:

    • The approved measure marks a significant enhancement in the Homestead Exemption, soaring from $40,000 to an impressive $100,000.

  3. Wide-ranging Benefits:
    • Both owner-occupants and investor homeowners across Texas stand to reap substantial benefits from this landmark decision.

This $18 billion settlement signifies a monumental step towards fostering a more favorable environment for property owners, enhancing affordability, and promoting the growth of real estate investments.
