when they drove past this house during the reassessment.
In fact, we just happen to have the sales brochure from the 2001 sale when the home actually sold for $167,000. The sale was used to determine the assessed values of all other homes in Neighborhood Code 4807 during the 2003 reassessment, yet the assessment on this home was never changed from the previous $109,200 assessment. In fact, an addition was put on in 2003, but still the assessment never changed. They finally raised the assessment in 2004 when all homes in Neighborhood Code 4807 were trended 5.5% (or at least some of the homes in Neighborhood Code 4807 were trended). Read the description that the realtor put on the sale sheet.
Let's see...3,009 sq. ft. assessed for $115,200....that equates to an assessment of $38.28 per sq. ft. (supposedly market value) compared to:
This 845 sq. ft. home that is assessed for $66.50 per sq. ft. Wonder if this home also has an inground pool and a whirlpool bath?
