it must be that ~$6k some thing assessment, payable in 10 years (from build date), three hundred some in May and hundred some in Dec , annually right ?? check your prelim Tittle report ... I am pretty sure it is in there (if a local Title company was use, they wouldn't miss it). It wouldn't show up in HUD or sell contract and I am pretty sure agents wouldn't tell you if you didn't ask (how would you ask if you didn't even know it existed ?). We spotted ourselves when reviewing the paperwork. Initially we thought we had a good deal; but, it turned out just okay when we factor in this assessment. Personally, I think it should have been disclosed either by seller or by buyer agent (if he/she have sold at least 1 house in Buckeye area). If you can find a better solution (from buyer pays), then I would love to hear it from you.
ps: Buckeye, AZ potential buyers (ask your agent about the assessment (Mel la Rue some thing) and factor it in your final bid price)
