I recently received my TRIM notice and was pleased to see that I am going to pay less in property taxes this year. Obviously Amendment 1 that was approved by voters on Jan 29, 2008 on property taxes is working. Owning a home is becoming affordable again in Hillsborough County Florida. Home prices are pretty close to bottoming out, mortgage rates are at an all time low, and now property taxes are affordable. WOW! What a great time to buy a home.
