Property taxes are based on what the last seller paid for his home. This tax rate will change when you become the new owner. Taxes are approximately 2% of your purchase, no matter what city you are purchasing.

Taxes are relative, but as others have pointed out the millage rate in Weston is in line with other local municipalities. In Florida, since we do not have an income tax, our main source of revenue is through our property taxes so that is very important to consider when looking at your tax bill. Just imagine the additional income tax drain a state tax would have on your total budget. When you add everything together our total tax load is very much in line with most parts of the country and a bargain compared to some. In fact, much of our growth over the coming years will be heading south from New York where many just want out because of the total tax load they are experiencing.
I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,
