Appraisal To Remove PMI...,
If the city gets to tax you on the new value.
The City can only tax on the appraised value according to the tax appraisal that's completed every few years - a private appraisal doesn't change the taxable value. If it did, your taxable value would have increased at the time of the first appraisal.
Zillow's "value" is bullshit and no one cares about it unless they're trying to make themselves feel better by thinking that they have phantom value no one else will recognize.
Pull some comps, have a list of upgrades and be ready to plead your case. What's the worst thing that can happen? On 23 Jul 2014
The Greatest Health Care system?,
Hey TPB: I love the way that you quote vague statistics as if they somehow hold some magic meaning. You seem to believe that you're "in the know," and that by throwing out some random numbers you can prove anything. Now it's my turn:
I asked four of my coworkers what they thought of my running for the office of President of the United States of America in the next election.
My secretary thought it would be a wonderful idea and that I would be an excellent leader of the free world, and I felt that she was so astute that I approved her request to have the rest of the day off with pay.
My office partner supported my candidacy after I gave her the desk near the window and promised to shut up for the rest of the afternoon so she could play some stupid game on Facebook.
Our shared assistant was thrilled about the prospect of me being out of the office if I run - so I've got her vote.
My boss - not so much. She realized that if I was elected the next President she wouldn't be able to get me to substitute for her at our long-assed meetings. Since she does this frequently, I most certainly don't have her vote.
So - to recap - 3 out of 4 people that were polled support my run for president. That's a 75% approval rating, which makes me a shoe-in.
I'm giving my notice at work tomorrow.
