If Connecticut lawmakers have their way, home buyers may soon be paying a transaction fee that will be used to preserve open spaces in the state. We all want to keep our open spaces, but we at Floor Décor are wondering if home buyer (and sellers) are not already paying quite a bit as they conduct their transactions. Here is the first bit of this story that we are sure will be of interest to many who live in Orange, CT:

“The Connecticut General Assembly’s Planning and Development Committee is considering a bill that would allow municipalities to charge a buyer’s fee on property transactions larger than $150,000. House Bill 6926, introduced by Democratic Reps. Linda Orange, Kevin Ryan and Joe Gresko, would permit a municipality to impose a buyer’s fee on the conveyance of property occurring on or after July 1 at a top rate of 1 percent of the sales price.”
