    Is it possible that the taxes shown for the west orange condo are listed incorrectly? When I looked at the actual listing it indicated that they were only around $8000, but in the caption it says around $14,000.

    Note to the owners of the Baldwin property: If you lose the horrific blue shag rug, have the floors sanded and finished, update the kitchen (paint the cabinets, put tile on the floor, add a new counter top get new appliances) and put a nice neutral color on all the walls, you might have a better shot at selling. Yes, you’ll have to spend about $15k, but it will be worth it.

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
