Lisa, the responses you have received so far are correct - it all depends. But is you are looking for ball-park numbers. I would estimate that in San Antonio RE taxes would be around $450 per month and insurance (again varies a lot depending on what coverage you get) but ball-park it at around $85 per month.

Call me for more details.

Tax amounts vary based on location. Different factors influence it such as being inside or outside the city limits or being inside an incorporated city. A bigger factor is the school district and what percentage they use to determine the tax on the home.

If you can give me a an address I can give you a more specific estimate.

The general rule I use for ESTIMATING taxes in the city, is $3 per $100 valuation. So a $200,000 home would be about $6,000 ($500/month) and about $100/month insurance.
Something the Chamber of Commerce and Realtors might not tell you: San Antonio has some of the highest property tax and sales tax rates in the country. But housing is STILL a great bargain here. You get a lot for your money, despite the high property taxes.

Hi Lisa,

It depends what area the property is in. The rates differ from area to area. Here is a link to all the tax rates and you can calculate on your own.


Insurance depends on who you are using and what you want to be covered.

I hope this helped you a little.

Hello Lisa it really depends upon the area the home is located in. If you are in Bexar county you can look up the home's address on line with the appraisal district (most any county for that matter). Insurance you can obtain a quote from a local insurance agency, also depends on location too. Good luck :)

Home owners insurance will vary depending on the value of the home minus the land value. An oceanfront home might be $200,000 with a $50,000 house on a $150,000 lot and the home insurance is based on the $50k. Another house might be next to a city dump and the lot is worth $20,000 and the house is a mansion worth $180,000 making the insurance more costly. So you can't answer your question as asked. We need to know the home value, not the lot and home value.
