Zillow has the 30 day update of utica house prices down ten thousand dollars. The median house dropped from ninety thousand to eighty thousand due to large numbers of property listed for sale after the latest insane property tax hike.
I spoke to some realtor friends and they said people are getting desperate to sell and get out. They also said that the only people buying are out of town landlords looking for rental property's.
The final nail in the coffin?

Many people have gotten out. Many more are saying to get out while our properties are still worth something.
What kind of city you expect with a city planner like Brian Thomas>?
I can't believe the statements made by City Planner Brian Thomas????

...and you would think that with the taxes paid in utica and oneida county the place should be nothing short of Mecca...instead it's still a cess pool on the downward trend.

I've always found it hysterical that homes in Utica are passed literally 25-30 thousand dollars more than what they can be sold for.. Its unreal

I respect your opinion. However, it is not based on facts.
Here are the facts. The Oneida County government, and the Utica City School District are run by professionals who have no problem staying within the governors annual tax increase cap of 2 % for the past two years. The city of Utica cannot. There are cities which have been able to decrease their taxes. Try some research before you add to our discussion.

Utica seems to have it backwards.

Property taxes go up in desirable locations, not undesirable ones. Utica has a declining population and an increasing poverty rate yet the taxes keep increasing. Doesn't make a lot of sense. Think of utica as a business and their product is gaining new residents. Would a company that has dwindling sales increase their price?

Yea & Picente's got $12 million to work with as a result of the land claim settlemesnt. Is he going to assist the towns & cities? F*ck no. What he is doing is ripping us all off with the retro sewer tax hike. I just hope voters remember this aszhole come election time.

Actually clifton park is less expensive based on real property values. Sales tax is also 7% but thank you for your concern.

Would a company that has dwindling sales increase their price you ask? Of course they would, if they were stupid! Some bean counter thinks that by increasing taxes that they will gain more revenue. That's how a 12 year old would think because they don't take all of the extenuating circumstances into consideration when making that decision. In the short term they will gain additional revenue. However, they have forsaken the future for the assumed quick and easy fix. Infrastructure is in desperate need of repair, services have been reduced, yet they raise the taxes and still overpay the Police and Fire Departments and city government. Anyone who isn't blind can see what the future holds for Utica.

Sometimes it amazes me that people bash comments on topix as stupid or full of stupid people on some of these threads. Yet the replies on here are all more informed and inteligent by far than the people who run Utica and the people who vote these losers into office.
I guess the ones bashing must be city hall employees, perhaps that is what they spend all their time doing instead of their jobs!
How can it be so obviously a disaster to raise taxes, yet they do not see it? Are the council and mayor all so nefarious that they do not care their names will be dirt for many years like Roefaros?

That's the Utica toilet people for you. They change the talk to race blame rants or contests to debate what's better Albany or Oootica!

They were a shallow people!

Raising taxes keeps the government employees employed.
