Higher property taxes do lower demand for housing and help depress the cost of housing, though. Prices increase more slowly in places with high property taxes vs lower property taxes.

In terms of real wages the conditions of the average german did not actually materially improve during Nazi leadership, but it was no secret that refusing to join the party placed you at a disadvantage/made you suspect.

Many Anti-Nazis joined the party just to cast off suspicions. It really didn't mean you supported the party. No more than being part of the Communist party in the USSR meant you believed in Communism. It just meant you were willing to pretend.

Close to a quarter of the german population was part of the Nazi party, for most it didn’t mean anything else than being part of a social club that helped them get promotions at work
