This week’s guest on “The Future of Real Estate” will be Lee County Florida property appraiser Ken Wilkinson. Ken was the Father of Save our Homes Ammendment years ago and served on the Tax and Budget Reform Comittee that meets every 20 years. Ken was appointed by the Governor to sit on that panel. This panel came up with several ammendments voters will be voting on this election. 3 ammendments were taken off the ballot by a judge who said the wording was not clear to voters. Unfortunately by law they are only allowed 74 words to describe the entire ammendment, so it’s very hard to get everything in and make it clear.
Ken will also tell us how property values have done in 2008 and what that could mean for your assessment when it’s analyzed on January 1, 2009. The Future of Real Estate presented by The Ellis Team at RE/MAX Realty Group can be heard Saturdays at 11:00 AM on WINK AM 1240 and 1270 in Collier County. It is also broadcast over the Internet after the show airs.
Next week we may have on Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp back on our show, so tune in next week as well.
