Description

The New Times reports on Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley's suspicious real estate dealings. Stapley has been involved with property that was being investigated for illegal lot-splitting. He also appealed the $1.5 million assessment of a home he purchased for $900,000, after which real estate prices began sky-rocketing, and after his home had undergone major improvements as showcase home benefiting charity. The improvements, which are offered at a discount price by designers for the showcase, cost Stapley about $300,000. He's selling the home for $2.5 million, but asking the assessor to value it at $863,000.
