    Apparently a lot of bettors liked the Vols with those odds. The line has flipped now, with the Vols one-point favorites.

  1. I have a little old house down by the river surrounded by the homes of millionaires. "nuff said"
  2. I meant I could look from my front porch.

    School is in the AM. I'll ring the bell.

    Sure I am and you are wrong. It's a place of light taxation. See the miserable school system. There are more properties in Knoxville that do not even pay taxes because of abandonment than 5 digit tax billed single-family homes. TTFN.
  5. End of discussion.
  6. I can look at houses that are assessed for $$$.
  7. You are funny.

    Nope. I've got a Ph and D on how to look up things dealing with land and what not. Knoxville and Knox County uses tax assessed value not market value. Our house is assessed at about 1/3 of its market value. About one percent of single-family properties in Knox County (which includes the city) have total property tax bills in excess of $10K a year. It only a very few houses in the County alone (not in the City) that break that barrier because of the exceptionally low rates on property taxation there. It's one of the reasons why Knox County lags behind developmentally, which has more realistic property tax regimes.

    You can go on UT's library website and read a whole master's thesis on the problem by a former UT geography grad student. I was very shocked to see the relatively low rates of taxation on houses in and around Bluegrass Road some of which are lake front. 4000 sq ft homes with $4000 tax bills.
  9. not much. unfortunately it usually has the same vibe as faux news, jerry springer and ben stiller combined. triple whammy on the lowest forms. oh well.
  10. just noticed last night... seems y'all had some blab drama (tomi) during my time away. silly ole blab rama.
