FRANKFORT, Ky. — The man who recently sold the house where Gov. Matt Bevin’s family is now living says the property sold at a fair market price.
The recent $1.6 million sales price is far below values listed for the property by the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator – including a brand new value posted Friday. But Neil Ramsey, who sold the house, said the PVA values are too high for several reasons, including that a deed recording a prior sale of the property included wrong information that caused the PVA to list too high a value.
“It was sold at fair market value,” Ramsey said in an interview following a Thursday meeting of the board of the Kentucky Retirement Systems. Ramsey, appointed to the board by Bevin, has been a donor to Bevin's campaign for governor, the Republican Party of Kentucky and the Bevin inauguration committee.
The Courier-Journal reported recently that Bevin’s family apparently is living in the Anchorage house, which deed records show a Ramsey company called The Anchorage LLC sold to a company called Anchorage Place LLC on March 9 for $1.6 million.
