If You Try To Walk, I'll Tax Your Feet...

My son has a friend in Maryland who invited him to visit this weekend.  In anticipation of our trip, I did a bit of Google-ing to see what the situation is in the housing market there.  One blurb in a dismal and dreary housing investment forecast site seemed to sum things up in very few words.

Maryland: "The average property assessment statewide will go up 18.7% a year over the next three years, a 55.5% increase by 2009. The increase is less than last year's record of 20.1%… Last year, the median price for county homes dropped 3.5% to $337,500. Home sales also fell by 20% in 2006. Local resident: "Maryland is a good place to live if you don't work for a living. The county tax will go up 2%, the state tax will go up 10% every year for the rest of my life until the day I die."

Wow, all that and the Orioles, too!
