Geez, Ken, thanks for the input, there. FYI, my property taxes are under $1700 a year on 11 acres, but we're within the city limits of an increasingly desirable town. I said it's worth $275,000, I didn't say I paid that, or the $190,000 for that matter. The valuation is a real estate sale valuation, not a tax valuation, and it's based on the value of recent comparable home sales in the immediate (and high end) area. I really appreciate your insinuation that because I have a high value property that I'm unqualified to comment on anything. I bought my last house for just over $50,000 and made thirty grand flipping it in 3 years. Then I was able to pay a little more for this house and I could flip it again and make even more, all the while farming, staying at home with my kids, and living the good life. That kind of maneuvering is still possible in Maine, whereas it's more difficult in other states. There's nothing wrong with that.Ken in Maine said:fin29 no offense but if you've got a $190,000 house that increased to $275,000 I don't think you're in a position to define "cheap"... You're property taxes are probably higher than my annual income.
