Hello Chris,
You're not the only person who finds that wording confusing. "On or About August 1st", simply means that the target date is August 1st, but allows a 30 leeway for either party. So, if you've got your commitment and plan on closing on the 1st, but the homeowner can't vacate until August 15th, they are within their legal rights (I'm not an attorney, but that is the proper phrasing) to hold off until the 15th. Conversely, it helps the buyer in the event that their lending institution is slow to process your mortgage. You also would not feel "under the gun", because you have that same 30 day leeway.
The majority of real estate contracts are written this way. The other way the contract can be written is when it states: "Time is of the Essence"; in this case August 1st, means August 1st.

Hope that helps you and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by phone, text or email.
Good Luck,
Susan Monaco

Each year in Nassau County, each residential property is assessed by the Department of Assessment. They estimate the market value of your property (most probable price at which a property would sell if offered for sale under ordinary circumstances) then is applied a fractional level of assessment.

From there, depending on the county, village/town/city and schools budgetary needs, does the level of assessment gets multiplied against each faction.

For example, a property at the beginning of the year is assessed market value is $570400. they then multiply that value by .25% = 1426 (assessed Value ) then starting with the nassau county taxes multiply that by each individual component per $100 assessed value.

11C - county general fund is 18.711 per every $100 X 1,426 = $266.82
They are 8 Tax Levy for the county alone. 11C,11E,11F,11N,11P,11W,1204 and 13
For Town of Hempstead (example) there is 11T, 12H,12T,147,1L,1V,1X
Then for school its school, Library and maybe Recreation. The School tax is the most expensive per $100 of assessed value.

There are assessment caps and exemptions. as far as expected increase will be based on what the next years assessment. if your home value goes up then so will your taxes and vice versa.

i hope this helps
