people you should seriously think about what the illegals cost the tax payers. from the government benefits to the education system, the legal system, and not to mention the grief they cause to victim's families and the property damage. now i know texas has a huge mexican population and some are decent people, but its not right for the tax payers to support the illegas and that could include you as one who pays for them. to all the people that feel you have such a obligation you are free to send money to mexico and possibly help educate them in mexico. the u.s. tax payers do not have that obligation!
It appears you want to buy a home in Sachse? If so, in general, in North Texas most property values range from 2.1-2.9% per 100 dollars. The first step would be to connect with a Realtor who can connect you to a trusted loan advisor where you can discuss your financial status and together determine your approval for a home loan. Once your approved, for say a $100,000 home for instance, you can then opt to buy less than that, but that is a better place to start. Each neighhborhood may vary in terms of tax rate. A loan officer will be able to also include the taxes in your loan as part of your monthly mortgage payment. An average might be 2.3-2.5%.

Great question however, Since Texas is such a huge state answering your question is impossible. Sort of like " how much is the cost of a car?"
If you can narrow your questions to a major city, (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Lubbock...) we can help. But what good does telling you Frisco is 2.2% if are looking to live 300 miles south?
That means they have no local government at all. Everything (schools, roads etc.) is taken care of at the county or state level. The people living there really have no input on what happens in their township or unorganized territory.
The taxes there are often half or less compared to towns and cities. The problem is there is usually a reason they are a township or unorganized territory. Almost no one lives there and jobs are almost non-existent.
