Regarding Proposition 13: It is understandable that people working in the real estate industry hate the prospect of a Proposition 13 coming to Utah. There is no question that the turnover of property would be less, hence fewer commissions. The good part is that after initial purchase, the taxes are set and stay unchanged as long as you own the house. Maybe not a moneymaker for Realtors, but older folks will not have to sell the house to pay the escalating taxes.
