My house was just assessed in preparation for the 2008 property taxes. And you know what the city assessor did? He lowered its estimated value by $20,000.
That's right. The city's estimation of its market value is currently less than what I paid for it in 2003. Q tried to cheer me up by telling me that condos in his neighborhood are currently listing for $30,000 less than what he paid for his in August, but it didn't help much.
Is it any wonder I'm spending my evening online reading fic in a vain attempt to distract myself?
