Rant: Home Prices Drop, My Assessment Soars
My proposed property assessment for 2009 is about $120,000 over what my 2008 assessment is. Given that average Washington home prices have fallen 10.9% since last January, I think my tax assessor's a bit optimistic about my property's appreciation (don't get me wrong, I would be thrilled to know that my house is worth 20 percent more today than it was last year -- keep it coming if that's the reality!). I've appealed this proposed assessment and will report back on my success (or lack thereof).
