My mother and I have been trying to find a house. We both have excellent credit and qualify for a house within decent range, but here's the kicker, every DECENT foreclosed home is $5000+ in property taxes leaving people of color, especially African Americans with only the option of living in ghetto low income neighborhoods. Its ridiculous, all of the neighborhoods in PG County, Maryland where majority whites lives, the cost of the homes are exactly the same as in the black neighborhoods, but they tax the houses 5000+, where in low income neighborhoods the taxes are $3000 or less. If anyone knows a thing about Prince Georges County Maryland, you would know that if you don't want to have to deal with high crime, then you stay away from areas like Temple Hills, Oxon Hill, Silver Hill, Marlo Heights because those areas are dangerous, and I refuse to live there but I'm tired of paying for an apartment that cost just as much as the mortgage on a house and not getting a tax deduction. It is very obvious what they are trying to do. Its called Red Lining communities and forcing new age segregation. Unless you are in a family where three or more working adults are living in the house or you make $75,000 a year you cannot even afford a foreclosure, even though they claim they are working with the public to sell these homes. Bullsh*t!
