Michigan property values remain dramatically below 2008 levels

Redford

Redford saw property values fall by more than half between 2008 and 2016, taking a huge bite from tax revenues. More than 1,200 Michigan cities and townships have seen values remain below 2008 levels.

Property value increases remain elusive

In most communities in Michigan, the value of all property -- residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial -- remains below 2008. Only a few communities have seen residential values climb above 2008 while agricultural communities saw bigger increases. Click on a municipality to see how values changed.

The numbers are staggering: Between 2008 and 2016, Flint lost more than three-quarters of its taxable value. Detroit, now the state’s second largest city in terms of property value, saw its value plummet by $7 billion, losing nearly 60 percent of its 2008 value.

It’s not just those two cities that remain dramatically below 2008 values. It’s also Muskegon Heights and Saginaw. Pontiac and Albion. Taylor and Southfield. And more than two dozen other communities.

While property values have yet to recover across most of Michigan, more than 1.4 million people – one in seven residents – live in communities where property values are less than half of where they were at the beginning of the recession.

Those declines have gutted property tax collections and affected what cities can offer citizens in security and amenities, limiting the qualities that make these communities attractive to newcomers. It’s also prompted some communities to raise property taxes even higher – further diminishing desirability.

And because Michigan restricts how quickly increases in property values can trigger increases in taxable value, a Michigan law that irritates municipal leaders and their advocates, the financial effects could linger for decades.  

A Bridge/Crain’s project

This week’s articles on changes in local property values since 2008 are part of an occasional series of news collaborations between Bridge Magazine and Crain’s Detroit Business. Come back Thursday for a closer look at home values across Michigan.

Can these cities suffering the steepest declines ever recover?

“Under the current structure, no,” said Tony Minghine, associate executive director and chief operating officer of the Michigan Municipal League, an association for townships, villages and cities. The municipal league has long advocated for changes in how the state funds municipalities.

For this report, Bridge Magazine and Crain’s Detroit Business analyzed the annual property value assessments, compiled by the state treasury, for all municipalities in the state from 2008 to 2016. It adjusted the past values for inflation and focused on real property, comprised mainly of residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural property.

The data show that industrial property fell the furthest overall, losing 40 percent of its 2008 value. Meanwhile, residential property, by far the largest class of property comprising 75 percent of all value, fell 21 percent. Only agricultural land was worth more in 2016 than it was, adjusted for inflation, in 2008. Commercial property is still 24 percent below 2008.

Municipal meat and potatoes

Many communities across Michigan faced the same daunting problem: As property values plummeted after the housing bubble popped and the recession deepened, property revenues that fund city services likewise fell. Municipal employees took pay cuts and furloughs, and paid more for their health benefits.

Certainly, not every city or township is suffering; some have seen home prices rebound and overall property values begin to climb. And yet, only 183 municipalities in the state have seen overall property values exceed 2008 levels, when adjusted for inflation. Most are small towns with fewer than 2,000 residents. All told, just under 400,000 people live in these 183 communities.

For the remaining 9.5 million people living in Michigan, the value of all property –  residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural – has fallen from 2008, in many cases markedly.

And for leaders in those communities, the fall in property and taxes has meant tough choices.

“The quality-of-life programs (were) unfortunately one of the first things that got cut,” said Tracey Schultz Kobylarz, supervisor of Redford Township, a community of 47,000 residents in western Wayne County. It lost more than 62 percent of its 2008 tax base, or more than $1.1 billion. At one point the township had a deficit of $10.2 million.

Those things that can create community and a sense of place were the first to go, or get changed: the holiday parade, the art in the park. Maybe a city mowed the parks or swept the streets less frequently; perhaps flowers didn’t get planted in the boulevard.

What remained: the basics of police and fire protection.

In Redford Township, the town’s parks department once had 15 employees; now it has three. Its ice rink is leased to a private company and public events in town – like holiday celebrations – require the generosity of local businesses that underwrite them.

Only a handful of communities saw the taxable value of real property –  residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural –  increase from 2008 when adjusted for inflation. More typical were double-digit drops in value.

Township employees pay more for less health coverage and haven’t seen much in the way of raises in eight years.

“We immediately readjusted what we do here,” Schultz Kobylarz said. “We knew that if we didn’t change the way we were doing things, we wouldn’t be able to turn the lights on in three years.”

At the same time property values were falling, the state had been cutting back on municipalities’ share of state sales taxes –  known as revenue sharing. The Michigan Municipal League estimates that Redford Township received $15.5 million less in state revenue sharing between 2008 and 2015 than what was anticipated, cuts that occurred under both Democratic and Republican governors.

While making its own cuts, Redford officials also asked voters for more money to help with public safety. They approved a special assessment property tax – but that raised the township’s overall millage rate, including Wayne County’s 9.1 mills, to nearly 35 mills (that’s $35 for every $1,000 in assessed valuation).

That’s one of the highest rates in the state; for a home with a market value of $100,000, property taxes would amount to $1,750. For comparison, in Brownstown Township southeast of Redford, it’s 22.3 mills; in Livonia it’s 23 mills; Canton 20 mills.

Schultz Kobylarz, who said the township needed the additional money, said she also knows those higher taxes come with a cost: “You can’t tax your way out of a broken system.”

And broken, she said, it is. “It’s 100 percent broken.”

Many agree, and point to a much larger and infamous example of government failure as Exhibit A. Financial woes in Flint, which lost 76 percent of property values between 2008 and 2016, lead a succession of state-appointed emergency managers to make the fateful decision to switch water systems without properly treating the new water to prevent lead poisoning.

Haves and have-nots

Robert Kleine is a former state treasurer who worked for former Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm. He’s now the interim director of the MSU Extension Center for Local Government and Finance, which helps municipalities with financial planning.

“There are winners,” Kleine said, referring to standout communities like Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids that have seen values substantially recover and are attracting new residents. “But there are too many losers.”

Michigan’s municipal finance structure is so wobbly that those cities that have seen the steepest decline in property taxes, absent a substantial recovery in revenue sharing, are in serious trouble.

Tracey Schultz Kobylarz, supervisor of Redford Township, has dealt with falling property taxes as the Detroit suburb was forced to trim staff, cut pay and benefits and eliminate township services.

“The only way the system we know can work is robust revenue sharing,” Kleine said. “The system is completely broken without (an increase in) revenue sharing.”

But that would mean finding more money –  read: taxes –  in Lansing with a legislature that just came close to cutting income taxes.

New taxes are often a hard sell. Fewer than two dozen cities have income taxes, and only Detroit has a utility tax (and casino revenues). Voters across the state have approved property tax increases for police, fire and other services, but there are limits as to how much communities can ask for – and in how much voters are willing to approve.

“You have a system where a community has zero ability to recover,” Minghine said.

Without reform, MSU’s Kleine wonders what will happen the next time Americans stop buying cars and homes and TVs, when they again tighten their belts and Michigan is facing rising unemployment and sliding property values.

“Right now we’re in an economic recovery,” Kleine said. “What’s going to happen in the next recession? And it’s going to happen.”    

Database: Has real estate in your town recovered since 2008? 

The value of all real estate in most of Michigan's cities and townships is still below 2008 levels, when adjusted for inflation, the long-lingering result of the Great Recession. Some areas have seen values exceed 2008, including heavily agricultural areas. But despite a rise in property values across Michigan in recent years, far more communities are still down from 2008. Type in a name of a community or county to find it (Statewide data are not available for villages). Note: These are state assessed values, which are one-half of market value.

Michigan suffered one of the worse 10-year periods of any state in 100 years, so, yes, that eventually led to a decline in local government revenue. But, it should be noted, property tax revenue is higher (adjusted for inflation) than it was 10 years ago: https://www.mackinac.org/21218

Michigan household income plummeted nearly 20% during the "lost decade." Local governments didn't see anything near that dramatic and, in fact, weathered the storm pretty well (and revenue is going back up).

Although the first Table shows Traverse City as the 2nd largest "gainer" (with 14.8% increase since 2008), the map & database show Traverse City as a "loser" (with 1.1% decrease since 2008). I would believe the Table over the Database, at least in parts of Traverse City. But either way, it seems the reported results at least for Traverse City are inconsistent.

TJ: Sorry it wasn't more clear. The increase referenced in the table was for 'taxable value', not assessed value, which has declined 1.1 percent in city.

Once again, Bridge tries to confuse the readers by talking about taxable values, real property values, and choosing or not to include new construction. For a fact, the check I write twice a year has never, not even once, been smaller than the previous year. We have paid an assessment for mismanaged municipal pensions, plus millage increases for who knows what and increased assessments each making my out of pocket costs larger each year. Put some clarity in your writing.

I was thinking the same thing, Rich. It seems like I pay way too much every year - I never saw a decrease in taxes, and I'm sure my neighbors did not either, so how can these cities have suffered so? They make up for it with other than property taxes to make sure they get theirs.

M. Wilkinson

Rich, the municipal level values do in fact include new construction because they would be included in a community's real estate values.

Neither Rich or Marion's observation about not paying reduced local (city, school & county property based) taxes is correct and leads me to wonder if they even look at their tax bills. Local taxes are tied to property values / assessments and they have been going down since the 2008 housing bust with concurrent reductions in property taxes. In fact the main reason for the decline in local services is the loss of revenue due to declining property values. This impacts local government & school system funding and is worsened by the decline in revenue sharing by the republican dominated government in Lansing. Good government costs money, so does quality schools. If you willfully reduce revenues out of political orthodoxy & ignorance including the current misguided push to eliminate the state income tax you get failed states like Kansas with its declining schools and failing infrastructure. If the point is accountability then push for transparency in election financing & governing decisions regardless of your political leanings. Then we can debate real things and not smoke & mirrors.

Sorry John, but I follow my tax expenditures to the penny. Every year, the check I write has increased. The SEV which is one half the assessment may have decreased in the down years, but the taxable value of my property has always increased. And if Headlee kicks in to limit millages, then something else is added. In 2015 it was an assessment to pay for a poorly managed pension fund in some adjoining district. In 2017 it will be another 2% to pay to intermediate school districts so that they can divide the funds and take money from my school district and give it to some other district. The appetite of governments for money is insatiable. For those of us without pensions, it is a pain in the ....

If you weren't so busy trying to concoct ways to blame the Republicans for your imagined problems and learned about how taxable and assessed values worked you'd understand that the statements you disparage are likely in fact correct.

Fascinating article & charts. Thank you for publishing this... I do wonder how these property values compare to historic prices? Is it fair to consider prices in 2008, since they were so inflated? There was a huge housing "bubble" in 2008. Can we look at the inflation adjusted prices in the 2000 / 1990's? I realize that might be challenging, but it's an idea to get a clearer picture of what happened in Michigan, and this seems to exaggerate the loss in value, since it doesn't consider the overvaluation that was happening.

Michigan's housing bubble was NOT like the national bubble. We never saw the kinds of spikes and speculative development that other parts of the country saw. As for regained home values, we just surpassed peak levels reached prior to the housing recession. And, quite frankly, are looking at major housing shortages in many parts of the state. One way communities can regain revenue is to grow their housing base. Instead, many are putting up barriers to new housing development. Go figure.

2008 is the worst comparison to use. Property values were on such a speculative climb and became so over inflated, it was ridiculous. I would submit you need to go back to maybe the late 90's to get an accurate picture. I see some similar things beginning to happen again. Every house which has sold in the last few years within a few miles of me has gone for full price or more and sold within a week of being listed.

None of this should come as a surprise. Taxable values may never exceed true cash value. As a consequence, after 2008 and 2009, we saw values drop like a rock. However, under Proposal A, increases in taxable value may never exceed the greater of the rate of inflation or 5%. While inflation has hovered around 2%-3% per year since 2008, the value of real estate in
some of our more vibrant communities has exceeded that. This, coupled with a number of legislative carve-outs to the uncapping provisions, means that much of our real estate inventory is being taxed at well below true cash value.

Hmmmmmm, still no mention of OPEB on the other side of the equation municipalities keep finding themselves in?

Why is that, Mr. Wilkinson?

The places in Gratiot County and the thumb area with increases over 20% are fueled largely by huge increases in the agricultural class. That is a result, I suspect, not of cash crops and livestock becoming more lucrative, but of "wind farm" owners needing more and more places to site their turbines, and the generous lease payments they offer to get them.

That's what we assumed, as well, John Q. Come back Thursday for the answer to your question.

How much property is exempt in 2016 that was assessable in 2008? An awful lot of personal property comes immediately to mind. Rick Jones currently has a bill proposing to exempt the property of Masonic Lodges. The legislature seldom turns down a request to gut the base further.
