Yeah, Zestimates on individual houses are worth every penny you pay for them. On a 3 family property that I actually input the correct data for, their rent estimate was 1/2 of what I'm getting, and higher rent indicated higher value on any appraisal.

But their market composites of sales I presume have a far lower margin of error, being based on data not guesswork.

Umm, that's not making any sense at all. Abated properties are not being examined, appraised and reassessed as part of the reval that I've ever heard. When they come off abatement they will be given an assessment, presumably based on their value at that time.

Sorry, I don't follow. Most of the new properties are abated and their taxes are not changing. If there is a general retreat of all property prices due to the reval (something I doubt) then they've lost money.

I'd add that condo conversions are complex and expensive.

I don't know if it outweighs any theoretical tax benefits, but I doubt it. More likely is that they are making profits on rents, and assuming the properties will appreciate.

Or, just turning a profit. Buildings like Portside Towers are still rentals, after all these years....

Holy crap.

Yep

Demand is high, inventory is low. Not just in JC, but all across the US. (https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2 ... housing-market/354486001/)

After the financial crisis, home builders overcorrected (surprise!) and didn't build enough homes to keep up with demand.

JC has been building, but most of the new units are rentals, and over 75% of units are rentals.

Good time to own a home, kind of a sucky time to buy one....
