    This is about average for Cumberland; property selling for 1/8 of its assessed value.

      Sadly regardless of what I may think something is worth, it is actually worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

        > Clearly true but even sadder is that the government assesses property at many times what anyone would pay for it and taxes it at that inflated rate.

    I wonder what he plans to do with it. It would be a shame to have another classic, historic building torn down.

      My guess is that he doesn’t really know what he will do with the building. He will likely wait until the pandemic passes. Whenever that is.

    Tim is a good guy, what ever he decides to do with it, it will be first class.

    Drove past on Friday and they were already hauling stacks of 2×4′s in thru the front door. Must have some plan in the work.
