My husband and I received our property tax assessment this week from the Cook County Assessor's Office and were happy to see the value was less. If we were selling our house, it would be a blow. However, we plan to stay there for a while and have been struggling to pay outrageous taxes, so it was good news.
Houses have been selling for less these days, so in a way it wasn't surprising. We're just hoping the places that need our money won't come up with some new formulas to raise our taxes anyway.
Prices are going down all over the place. I for one am always looking for a good sale and confess to clipping coupons from the paper.
