Don't let property taxes become a major factor in your home search at this time of year. If you're not yet under contract you most likely won't be closing until after August which will only give you approximately 4 months at the current tax rate. At the beginning of the year you can file for an appeal and for the homestead exemption which should successfully lower your tax rate.
If you need an excellent Agent to negotiate your contract, I'm here for you.

I have represented many clients that have purchased in Ellenwood, Decatur and Union City. They are paying 25-40 percent of their peak valuation. Property taxes are based on the earlier sale and have not come to present market. Usually they are in the 1800-2700 range. Current state legislation requires counties to reduce the valuation to the price paid in the year following the valuation. Our experience with 20+/- properties is that valuations were reduced in the year following the purchase. This cuts taxes by 60%+, in year three, we have not seen substantial increases.

If you would like assistance in purchasing give me a call.
