Got my re-assessment on the chateau yesterday. Until yesterday, I never thought of it as a chateau. Guess what? I live in Waterloo and my taxes are going up. My house is worth more money than it was the last time it was assessed. All I’ve done to it is re-roof and replace a garage door. You wouldn’t believe how that improved the value. I think I’ll sell it now and move to a cheaper property. Like that exists. The assessment makes me feel good about the long term worth of our home while at the same time makes me ponder how I’m going to foot the bill. Picture Lucy, Charlie Brown and a football.
