A person or entity that increases the appraised value of their real estate by $30,000 or more is eligible for a 5-year rebate of most the taxes paid on that new investment.

Best Practices for Managing Residential Rentals
With the increased amount of individuals moving back to Clyde, the absence of housing has not gone unnoticed. The quantity of jobs that have been added around our community have brought us new and returning faces, but why should it be a challenge and struggle for them to find housing? We should pride the fact that so many are willing to move back to their home roots and start a family. With such a high demand for housing recently, it is recommended that if you have a vacant house sitting across the street from you to strongly consider using that space for a rental property. Not only can it benefit you and put more money in your pocket every month, it can also help our community to develop and grow. If you do consider turning that unoccupied house into a rental property, there are some things you should consider in order to protect your property as a landlord and as a tenant.
