After a couple months now of holding live chats on Fridays at 10 a.m., I’ve come to the conclusion that it is absolutely impossible to predict what topics will hold an audience.
Last week, we chatted with local attorney Frank Countess, who has experience in challenging property tax assessments.
(The skinny: Your property taxes are based on what your house is worth. If your property value goes down, your taxes don’t go down automatically. You have to file an appeal or pray to god another countywide reassessment is on the horizon.)
I don’t get it … maybe because I don’t own land.
But the topic seemed to resonate with more than 50 participants who tuned into the live event on Friday.
This was just a few people shy of our most popular business live chat, the White Rose Matchmaker dating coach.
Dating vs. property taxes.
If I had to choose what topic to mull, it would be a no brainer.
But I guess that’s just me.
I feel this chat was successful not because of property taxes, specifically. It’s about the money-saving aspect.
And some York Countians I’ve met would play in moving traffic if it meant saving a few extra bucks.
When you combine that with the possibility of saving THOUSANDS in property taxes — well, that’s just live chat magic.
