    Ah, let's guess, the assessment is based on values from the past. YOu know, probably not based on $75k asking price of present time.

    Re: This would be a bargain

    the house was probably assesed around $200K. Once you buy it for $70K you can apply for a reassment to lower the tax bill.

    This is Michigan, they will probably raise the assesment. The only way that left leaning state knows how to do things is to raise taxes on the evil rich.
