Demo/Rebuild Program

Residential Incentive
One of the many reasons to make Farmers Branch your next home is our generous Demo/Rebuild Residential Incentive Program. A program that grants residents and builders upfront cash and tax rebates to demolish an old home and build the home of your dreams.

Incentive levels are determined based on the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) listed improvement value of a home.  DCAD improvement values can easily be accessed by visiting the DCAD website.

    • $30,000 cash grant
    • 3 year city property tax rebate
Improvement Value - $65,001 - $100,000
    • $20,000 cash grant
    • 4 year city property tax rebate

    • $10,000 cash grant
    • 5 year city property tax rebate

    • 7 year city property tax rebate

Cash Grant
Cash grants are issued in two payments. 50% following demolition of the old home and 50% when the certificate of occupancy is issued for the new home.

City Property Tax Rebate
The city property tax rebate is an economic development grant equal to 100% of the difference between the City property taxes assessed and paid on the new improvement value and the assessed value prior to the demolition. All valuations are based on structure only, does not include land value.
