i don't know about that.....i thought that was pretty funny!
however, i must disagree with nwlv.......I don't think he's taking that ESL class....because if he was, he would have had better writting skills...

ps. Margery, take a chill pill.

The Fairfax County Board plans to raise the tax rate so that we'll be paying the same amount as before.

Fairfax County needs to cut its appetite.
And cap the freaking taxes.

on the flipside, the rates will stay the same (at the higher rate that we will see in a couple of months) once the housing situation gets resolved in a few years.....so then, you'll be paying MUCH higher taxes because 1. your rates are higher and 2. your house value has gone up! LOL what a system. great!

The easiest way to go about this is to use Frankly MLS.

Go to www.franklymls.com

In the search box at the top of the page, enter the town you are looking in and your price range. Choose spreadsheet for your output.

The site will give you a list of everything on the market in your price range in that town and will show how the asking price compares to the assessed price in both dollars and per cent.

Thanks. I already use that site a lot and think it is great. I like the open house feature. I don't think the assessments on the site are updated for '09 yet...are they?

Well I am one happy camper (or should I not be?)!! Our home assessed for $31,650 MORE than what we paid when we closed on Jan 30th, and so that means I've got some additional built-in equity, right? I know some people don't like to be assessed to high, because that means higher taxes, but doesn't it also mean your Net Worth is higher and thus you are *richer* on paper?!

Looks like the Board will raise the rate from $.92 per hundred to at least $1.04. Chief Executive Griffin has proposed $1.055, which given the drop in assessed values, would mean the average tax bill would be just $14 higher than last year, which is less than inflation. Your mileage may vary, of course...
