    taxes than we do in LA so there is a trade off.  Our properties appreciate when Wall St. isn't stealing $ and screwing up the markets.  Yours don't.  Metro LA is a lot cheaper than other high priced top tier metro areas.  Dallas is not a top tier city.  LA, SF, NY, Chi, Boston, DC are.

      …on a lower base vs a lower % on a vastly higher base.

      Given that in major metropolitan areas housing prices cost 4 times what comparable home in Texas yet the property tax rate is only 2-3 higher (depending on the city/county/ISD), Texans still pay less in property tax.

      a city like Dallas after 16 years of Democratic governors (rather than the last 16 years of Bush and Perry), who cared about education and pollution.
      Then LA would have some competition.
      It could happen.
