looking to buy a home with my daughter familywe are looking to buy a three bedroom home in a good school district but would like either rent to own or purchase a three bedroom that is around 150,000 or under is this an unrealistic
I feel you. I am *greatly* depressed because it's been my goal for MANY years to live in that area. Now - I must change my dreams and goals because I would NOT be able to afford the $8000/yr+ property taxes there. Even the few 5000/yr property tax homes are too much for me. A tiny 2 BR house with 5000+++/yr property taxes??! I would have to get 2 more jobs JUST to support the property tax of my home.
It's incredibly sad. It sets the locals up for failure, foreclosure, and bankruptcy....very very sad. The school board/state board needs too look outside their own greed and pocketbooks, and see how other states make their school systems work. It's a dynamic situation that should be ever evolving!! Bigger is not better. Get creative and make it work. Stop punishing the community for your greed and poor choices based on your greed.... more
