If you want to know more information about the foreclosure property, you may check the county record where the property is part of or you may also contact a foreclosure specialist near your area for assistance.

I hope this information is helpful.

Dear Stephen,

What you have seen here is a notice of default or foreclosure provided by Realty Trac. Realty Trac takes information from public records and provides it to its subscription customers for a fee. Typically, at that stage, the property is in the process of foreclosure/pre-foreclosure and is not yet listed for sale. The home may (or may not) hit the market at some point, but it's hard to foresee, when and at what price.

If you would like to track the status of that particular home, you might want to subscribe with Realty Trac or go to the clerk's office and check the public records. Or, if you are actively looking to buy a property, I'd suggest you work with a local agent, who can show you homes that are currently on the market in your area and price range, including foreclosures and short sales.

Let me know if I can be of further help.

Kind regards,
Ania Lenzholzer

Edyta has given you a good answer. If you've just gotten your bill for this year, and the numbers aren't "adding up", here are a few additional things to keep in mind.

1) The second $25,000 of value (between $25,000 and $50,000) is taxed as if there is no homestead. This was done by the legislature to assure that most homeowners, even those with more modest homes, pay something.

2) Any increase in your valuation for taxes is capped at either 3% OR the cost-of-living index, whichever is less.

3) Florida grants additional exemptions for widows and widowers, people with disabilities, and low-income homeowners who are over 65.

4) Some cities have their own additonal exemption(s).

The following website is for the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser:

And, this site explains the various Florida property tax exemptions:

Good luck, and I hope this helps.

Warm regards,
