This house has "gained" $3,000 a month in value over the past five years? Only in Cville!

Wait--not EVEN in Cville any more. Didn't anybody read the recent real estate update? Local sales slower than ever.

BTW, the City assessor didn't "price" this place--he's not an appraiser. He based the value of the home on recent sales in the neighborhood. Last year's sales.
