Florida has overtaken New York to hold the second most valuable housing market in the United States, according to a study published this week by Zillow.

  1. @David — The rise in tax rates has nothing to do with support for the taxpayer, it’s to expand the government giveaway and increase the government power. It pulls the middle class down and increases the need for these programs.

    @No Such — Thanks. You folks have been mysteriously quiet lately and I was concerned that something might have happened to you. There are already enough mysterious COVID deaths and unexplained suicides without having to lose sleep over you, too!

  2. @ A Skeptic = If you remember, you used to be able to give a Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down to a Post and you used to be able to Reply directly to that Post. I am not sure why the changed it.

    I have been saying for several Years now that there are ZERO Reasons to raise Property Taxes. Just STOP with the wild unneeded Spending and the Taxes will catch up. Tallahassee has enough Parks and Trails for now, we can wait 5 Years before another one is built.

  3. We are going to likely get State Government intervention after the upcoming POTUS election. Local voters have no intention of voting for needed change. Likely a full forensic audit under the oversight of The FDLE into the relationship between Leon’s Property Appraiser and Elected Officials. Rumors are also whispering of a similar forensic audit on the Florida City operated Utilitiys begining with Gainesville and Tallahassee. Neither city will vote out their current leftist elected officials. No not ever.

  4. @Jon — The jump in property prices has me thinking that my decision(s) to not by certain properties about 10 years ago because the prices seemed so unreasonable a mistake. They would never make it to an MLS listing today at that old purchase price.

    @TR — How about an upgrade to the comments section of the site? Instead of 1 or 2 “me, too” type messages, a one-click like, thumbs-up, etc. would better show the support for the comment. And an off-the-mark comment could get a few thumbs down clicks instead of a negative comment initiating a flame war.

    @NSA — Just check to see if you’re still paying attention. 😉

  5. 2nd most valuable (expensive) housing market? Im not sure thats a good thing. That means higher taxes, insurance, and payments. Its time to cut property taxes.
