wow. they're asking $2.4 million for a townhouse in dtjc with taxes poised to rise sharply. what happened to the market collapse people were talking about?

Agree with K-Lo2 about it being too soon to gauge a trend. But as for the $9,000 rental income, say the buyer puts down $400k and mortgages $2M at 4.18% fixed for 30 years. That's $9,839 in debt service, plus taxes, plus insurance, plus maintenance/repairs, plus loss of investment return on the down payment. In other words, a seriously-negative cash flow investment. There's been an empty just-remodeled 4-family on my block for sale for a year or so listed at $4M. No surprise it's still on the market, and their taxes just jumped to over $40k.
