The ups and downs of property ownership

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 25, 2007 07:27 AM


Medfield's selectmen have approved a tax rate for the 2008 fiscal year of $12.80 per hundred thousand dollars of home value, up from $12.27 per hundred thousand last year.

Principal assessor Stan Bergeron said the average single-family tax will go up only about $70 (about 1 percent), because property values decreased by about 4 percent on average.
