The best person to consult is a local realtor. They will know the average real estate tax for each neighborhood.
The local tax accessor needs an address to check what real estate tax is for a property but will not know if their area is higher or lower then another area.

Keep in mind that taxes will vary based on exact location, property size, schools, local amenities, etc. If looking to buy, consider working with an agent of your own, he/she can provide necessary information, suitable listings, schedule showings, etc. In addition, when it comes to taxes, it's always a good idea to reverify information with the local tax assessor's office.
