The report says the housing slump has caused Los Angeles County's total property value to decline for the first time in 13 years.

The report says the overall value of property in the county declined by about $1 billion in value last fiscal year, as home values were reassessed downward. The county's property roll now stands at about $1.1 trillion, a nearly 1 percent decrease compared with the year before.
