Its been a rough market for homeowners the past few years but there have been a few bright spots.

I recently sold my existing Homesteaded property and moved to another home before Jan 1, 08. About 32% of the value of my previous home was shielded from the tax collector’s office due to my SOH exemption. I was able to bring that benefit with me and because my new home is valued for less than my old I will get a 32% reduction in my taxes in addition to the initial 50k deduction for my new homestead. It doesn’t make up for the discounted price I sold at but it is nice to have.

Has anyone else seen or benefited by this

Way cool! I didn't even know it had gone into effect yet. That's awesome! I don't know anyone who has sold their home and moved recently so I can't respond to your question, but excited about the possibility when DH and I are ready to downsize.
