County assessor's office: Duke's home sale price too high

Facts from the article:

Cunningham's sale price to Mitchell Wade - $1.675 million
Butler : County Assessor, true market value - $1.375 million


[...]
"The fact that it hadn't sold (also) indicates the $1.675 million sales price was too high," Butler said
[...]

Mitchell Wade's sale price -
$1.68 million

Michell Wade's final sale price - $975,000
Butler : County Assessor, true market value -
$975,000

[...]
After Wade put the house back on the market for $1.68 million, it sat on the market for 261 days. And by the end of that time, the listing price had come down to $1.3 million. He sold the house last October for $975,000, a $700,000 loss.

[...]

Let us remember the scale of this transaction. What woul
d you buy for 100,000? Write it down... I'll wait.


Okay?


Now multiply what you bought by 3. Okay, now multiply it by 3 again.
That's is what Cunningham got out of his transaction with Mitchell Wade.

This is what I picked for $50,000 a pop (that means I get two for each $100,000).





Can you imagine my gas bill?!

  • Another great post. It looks like both MicroMayhem and Words Have Power were on the same page regarding Duke's "Why should I?" quote.

    Keep up the good work.
