Livingston Parish Tax Assessor wants to start using aerial data to verify sizes for Property Tax Rolls

Livingston Parish Tax Assessor wants to start using aerial data to verify sizes for Property Tax Rolls | Baton Rouge Real Estate News | Scoop.it
LIVINGSTON - Livingston Parish Assessor Jeff Taylor wants to use aerial photography to verify the sizes of homes and businesses for the parish’s property tax …
Baton Rouge Real Estate News's insight:

Technology has increased to the point to where aerial photography or "aerial pictometry" does aid in measuring buildings.  It also allows Assessors to view added amenities over time, such as pools, workshop, guest apartments, all of which should have been recorded with a building permit.


Technology also allows insurance disaster inspectors to use satellites to determine IF a roof actually has damage, to what extent and if they should pay for a new roof or any other damage. This from an insurance adjuster friend of mine out of Ponchatoula working out of state. 


I'm not opposed to increasing the property tax rolls, especially since the local public schools rely so heavily on chocolate sales fundraising.

Top 10 Reasons Why Baton Rouge Home Buyers Prefer New Homes vs. Used


By Jay McKenzie


Today's new homes offer more benefits than ever before. Here's a quick list of the Top 10 reasons why so many home buyers prefer new homes to used houses:


1) Design Your Dream Home Your Way: Why settle for someone else's choices when you can select your favorite cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring? While you're at it, choose gorgeous bath and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you love. Your new home will reflect you, not someone else's taste.


2) Choose a Floorplan and Room Layout that Meets Your Needs: Want a master bedroom on the first floor? It's yours. With massive his and her's walk-in closets? Done! Want high ceilings and a luxurious, resort-style master bath? Perhaps you'd like a sitting room with a fireplace in your owner's suite or French doors that open to your private patio or the pool? It's easy, when you build your master suite your way.


3) All New, Under Warranty....Click through to continue reading reasons 3-10.
