<br />of $57,500 of his property as compared with 1970 market value of $50,990.
<br />Mr. Swanson said that the Assessors had reviewed the property in accordanqe
<br />with Mr. Hirschls request after,he had received his 1972 property valuation
<br />and that an adjustment was made to $56,000. Mr. Hirsch contended that, inas-
<br />much as he had paid $52,000 for the property of March 3, 1971, the present .
<br />market value was not realistic. Mr. Hirsch was told to advise the Assessor
<br />if he know of any other sales in- the area so that prices on these properties
<br />could be checked.

<br />Illinois while attempting to sell their home. Mr. Wightmad advised that he
<br />had selpt in this home on January 2, 1972, and was a tax paying resident of

<br />Mr. B. A. Umhoefer, 4612 Concord Terrace, protested'his 1972 market value of
<br />$42,700 which had been increased from $39,240 in 1970. Mr. Swanson pointed
<br />out that the 1970 valuation included, in addition to the reassessment, air
<br />conditioning and the addition of the property of a 225' family room which
