Lower Priced Houses are Over Assessed

This is a disturbing trend which I just read in the Washington Post. Analysts have reviewed millions of assessments and reached the conclusion that lower priced houses are over assessed resulting in disproportionately high taxes. This occurs because the lower priced houses are often in below average condition which would result in a low sales price. Assessors don’t usually see this because they usually don’t go inside the house. A weird set of circumstances. Written by Paul Dribin

An editorial from the Washington Post. It is interesting that responsibility for affordable housing will be placed in a revamped FHA.

Poverty in the Suburbs

I read an article in the Washington Post over the weekend which provided data that poverty is increasing faster in the suburbs than in central cities. I have heard reports of this nature for some time. Maybe this will make suburban voters a little more sensitive to the concerns of their counterparts in the city. Written by Paul Dribin
