What a clever disruption of the property tax industry!

But seriously, things like this are why we must not get too carried away focusing only on market opportunity. Some ideas are profitable, but socially disruptive. In this case, public policy is enabling predatory with very obviously antisocial results, but I think there are plenty of cases where the government isn't so directly involved and the results aren't so obviously destructive, yet antisocial, nonetheless. This is really addressed to the small but vocal minority that seems infatuated with profit-seeking, without concern for anything else.
