Realtors commissions are base upon the selling price of the property they sell. If it sells for $10,000 but is worth $50,000, their commission is based upon the $10,000 selling price.

My feeling as well. I suspect this "property tax relief" is, like with many issues, just an attempt to have the appearance of doing something, while actually doing nothing. Meanwhile, the masses, dazed by their exploding property taxes, will excitedly follow like lemmings.
