That is very true and more people should be aware of it.Proves you don't own property...you just buy the right to lease it from the government.
I agree I don't want to live next to joe the auto repair man who has 5 smashed up cars in his driveway, but I have no problem living next to someone who runs a home based business that is not obvious from the outside.In my town, a few beauticians have a shop in their home....no big deal....but then, if you lived on a residential street and a guy decided to have a mechanic shop or welding shop in his garage, it could be an issue. Common sense rules......think of your own property value when you might want to sell if there are broken down vehicles on jacks in the driveway next door.....it ain't the same as a pickup in the driveway with a ladder rack. Or a sign hanging from the mailbox saying "beauty shop". I promise it won't help with an appraisal.
