Another large home in Murray Hill has sold for far less than the new appraised value. This week 45 Birchall Road, appraised at $5,793,000 sold for just $3,800,000. The home was originally listed at $4,500,000, but sold for $700,000 less than the asking price and $1.2mm below the appraised value. The real estate tax shown on the listing is $129, 821 but the property record on the Village website shows updated taxes of $139,138.
In other real estate news, the overall base assessment of all Scarsdale real estate grew by $97 million or 1.05% in 2014. What does that mean for you? According to Village Assessor Nanette Albanese, "the (taxable) assessed value used to calculate a tax rate for the 2015 village and 2015 school taxes will be greater and reduced tax rates may result; assuming that budgets are not increased to the extent that any increase in the base assessment roll is consumed, or exceeded. " However, the larger assessed value base, will result in increased county taxes as Scarsdale will have to pick up a larger proportional share of the county tax.
