- Wisconsin's not worth what it used to be.
A new study says the value of Wisconsin's homes, businesses, farmland and forests fell .8 percent last year.
That's a loss of 3.6 billion.
The value of state property has now fallen for five years in a row.
The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance says the value of the state's properties was about 468-billion last year.
That's down from a peak of 514-billion in 2008.
The small decrease since last year may suggest the market has bottomed out and is starting to recover.
Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance researcher Dale Knapp predicts a leveling out, with an increase next year.
