Usually, when when the property is listed for sale the tax information is also listed there. If you have more questions or need assistance feel free to find me via my website boc-re.com. Good luck and happy house hunting!
A residential property is generally assessed at the residential rate. In addition, Boston, Cambridge and Somerville have a residential exemption of more or less $1,500 and if you lived in the property you would receive that exemption. My office is in Cambridge and I live in Somerville --I have lived in both cities for the past 30 years and have extensive knowledge of them so if you are looking for an agent with excellent client testimonials give me a ring.
