Where did you hear bad things?Where did you hear good things? I agree with Jim, best thing would be to go to the house you are interested in and talk to the neighbors. In my experience neighbors will provide you with good insight to the neighborhood as well as the previous homeowner. Like Jim said go around 6PM and see if there are kids are playing, people walking their dogs, watering shrubs etc...... more
Property taxes on a Condo are figured the same way as on a home. The Tax Assessors office has Appraisers who figure up the assessed value of the property based on sales of comparable properties in the area. Depending on your credit and loan type, you may have the option to pay your taxes outside of your mortgage, on a yearly basis. Most loans wrap the taxes into the monthly payment and hold them in an escrow account. You can look up the taxes on any property via the Tulsa Tax Assessor website. If you are working with a Realtor, they will be able to tell you what the taxes are when they look up the listing. Hope this helps.
