Hi Diane

I know you have received a numbers of answers concerning this property, but one more little tid-bit that you might find interesting.

This subdivision is located in the city of Grapevine. The agent should be showing the city as
Grapevine and a fine can be accessed from our local MLS. I know this to be true because my business partner, Brenda Blaser and I had a property listed in this subdiviion and we were given notice that a fine would be accessed if we did not show Grapevine as the city.......City of Grapevine, Schools are the Carroll ISD-Southlake schools. The beauty of this is you have lower taxes for the city of Grapevine.

Just a little I said the Blaser and Yoakum team work in this area all the time.....if you need anything additional let us know. Brenda Blaser and I would be glad to answer any additional questions you might have concerning this or any other property in the Southlake, Keller, Colleyville, Grapevine area.

Best of luck to you.............

Hi Diane -

The current taxes listed for this property are $13,679. However, the property has a pending contract on it. Taxes in Southlake vary by the school district and are based on the assessed price set by the Tarrant County Appraisal District.

Here are the 2010 rates showing the four possible school districts (Carroll ISD, Grapevine/Colleyville ISD, Keller ISD and Northwest ISD). Since the appraisal district reassesses each year, for estimating purposes, multiply the list price by the number below and you can pretty much be assured that taxes will not be more than that amount. For example, a home assessed at $600,000 in the Carroll ISD wil have a tax amount of approximately $15,060.

Southlake (CISD) 0.0251
Southlake (GV/CV ISD) 0.0238
Southlake (KISD) 0.0258
Southlake (NW ISD) 0.0262

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to call me at (817) 994-6639 or visit my website at

Best always check the county tax website HOWEVER the tax appraisal AND appraised value are two separate issues.

By the way, the correct school district is Carroll and the correct city is Grapevine, according to tax records.

I can't explain why Southlake is shown as the city, nor why the links go to Grapevine-Colleyville school district. The listing agent may be able to explain these discrepancies.

As a guess, the post office often has the same zipcode split up for adjacent suburbs, and Grapevine is sharing the Southlake zipcode. The schools in Southlake might accept children with the correct zipcode, maybe.

This house was assessed at $571k for the tax year 2009. The taxes without any exemptions would be $13,680 approximately. With homestead exemption $13,060 with senior exemption $11,910 or other exemptions might apply.

If you were to purchase a house valued at $599k, the taxes would be slightly higher for the 2010 tax year:
$14,350 - $13,700 - $12,500, based on current real tax rates, for the same cases - no exemption, homestead, senior.

Because this house is under contract, we can't be sure what price was agreed to be paid, which would affect 2010 taxes. Texas is a non-disclosure state, meaning prices paid for real property can be excluded from the public record. Realtors cannot publicly announce prices paid per our Code of Ethics, even though we may have access to the data. Some exceptions apply.

If you need other information, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Diane,

This particular property's taxes for 2009 were $13,679. You can find any property's taxes online at the county appraisal district, in this case Tarrant County Appraisal District. This property does have a Pending Contract on it at this time. Hope that helps Diane! Please let me know if you need anything else!
