Peggy, Are you thinking of buying new construction from a builder? They will already have some information about how it is assessed . If you are thinking of buying land and building on it, you you should contact the tax assessor's office. You have received good information from Frank. I would like to add that you should remember the builder's agent represents the builder and if you would like to work with a buyer's agent you should go with your agent to the model homes.
If you would like information about homes in the area visit my web site www.gitabantwal.com and look up 1000s of listings.
