However your realtor can tell you as well taxes will be on your mls printout for the home you are looking at. (Remember if you are looking at new construction with a builder, the taxes will reflect only the lot not the new improved house so you will want to budget for that.)
As a first time homebuyer I would recommend getting an agent they can save you time and money. They can guide you through the process, get you qualified and assist you with taxes, insurance, builders incentives closing cost statements, down payments ,mortgages, Hoa or CDD and so on. Basically they will furnish you with a buyers net sheet so you can calculate all costs and not be suprised at the closing table. They can also negotiate some fees be paid for you depending on your purchase.
On insurance it depends on location, cost of the house and your contents to insure. If you are looking in an area Call these companies give them the zip and they will ask you a few questions they can give you an approximate price until a permanent address is found. My clients have used this agency they have excellent customer service.
Hope this helps! If you are searching for an agent feel free to call me, I will answer any questions you have. 813-352-6168. Congrats again on everything and what a great time to buy interests rates are at an all time low. I also have great mortgage brokers to work with if you need to get qualified. Good Luck!

Also it's important to be aware of any "extra" taxes, i.e. Community Development District Taxes. CDD can add as much as $2k or more "extra" to your property taxes---depending on the community.

All the best,
If you are just looking for property taxes, you can look on public records for the county you are looking into. For example, if you are looking at a home in Hillsborough, you can look up the public records for that property and see the taxes for the current year.
Please let me know if you have any more questions or would like any help with your search.

By entering the mortgage pre approval process, you will learn a lot about your personal finances and each other.
If your credit history(ies) require repair you can address these issues now before entering into a large financial purchase together.
Looking for a home and selecting the home will be the fun part. Dealing with how to pay for it is the realistic part.
Get pre approved first.

The Homebuyer class may also satisfy the class requirement to get up to $7,500 from the State of Florida Bond Program. You MUST work with an APPROVED lender to get the Bond money and you must have satisfactory credit and for a couple cannot earn more than about $70k per year, take a look:
I would suggest contacting Gina Harris with Iberia Bank, she's very experienced with first time homebuyer programs and is one of the approved lenders for the bond money. There is plenty of bond money available so don't let a non-approved lender lead you to believe otherwise! Lenders don't like the bond program because it limits the profit they can extract from a homebuyer in the way of fees or higher rates.
Hope this helps.
All the best,

Figure out and know what you can COMFORTABLY afford, don't blindly trust that you can afford what a lender pre-approves you at. You'll realize soon after closing that buying a home comes with unforseen expenses almost every month.
That said, I believe that buying a home still remains one of the single best investments you can make! Good luck!
You really don't have to estimate amounts for a home's taxes and insurance. This is information that your agent should be able to provide that comes directly from the listing agent.
Remember, Florida has a "Homestead" exemption that allows its residents to apply for a discounted tax amount. For an approved Homestead exemption applicant the standard deduction is $50,000. This plan allows people qualifying to decrease their assessed value by the deduction amount(commonly $50,000.) So, if you purchase a home with an assessed value of $200,000, the actual amount that is taxable is $150,000. You can do an internet search for additional information.
Our recommendation is for the best service always consider using an experiences real estate professional for your buying or selling needs. Should your needs extend into Sarasota County, we would be happy to hear from you.
Hope this is helpful. Good luck.
If I could go back in time and know then what I know now I would have worked with a good buyer's agent and let the agent do all the work for me. There's nothing like first-hand experience...lesson learned. Best of luck to you and have a wonderful holiday!
Every house has a different taxable value, thats why you bhave an agent, its their kjob to provide that to you.

But the very first thing prior to starting your search is to speak to a lender and find out how much home you can actually afford. That also is a free process. It could be the bank where you keep your checking and savings, or an independent mortgage company. They will give you a letter that is required when placing offers on any property. Your agent/Realtor will need this letter to know which homes they can show you. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".
