This property located at 27 Mason drive has taxes just shy of $17,500 annually. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance or if you would like me to email all the properties currently for sale in the area. Best of luck in your search.

A property tax (or millage tax) is a levy on property that the owner is required to pay. The tax is levied by the governing authority of the jurisdiction in which the property is located; it may be paid to a national government, a federated state, a county/region, or a municipality. Multiple jurisdictions may tax the same property.

There are four broad types of property: land, improvements to land (immovable man-made objects, such as buildings), personal property (movable man-made objects), and intangible property. Real property (also called real estate or realty) means the combination of land and improvements. Under a property tax system, the government requires and/or performs an appraisal of the monetary value of each property, and tax is assessed in proportion to that value. Forms of property tax used vary among countries and jurisdictions.

you got the tax answer below, but why are you not working with a Buyers Agent, Your personal Realtor, working in your interest and be you one stop resource for all your questions, finding properties and
showing them and going through the entire process with expertise and guidance.

Buyers agents are usually paid out of the proceeds from the Sellers side at the closing table, all that
is required from you is your 100 % commitment and loyalty to one Realtor, your personal buyers agent.

That way no questions to ask here and there, someone constantly on your side, assisting in writing a good and well researched offer, once you find the right home.

If you need a recommendation for the areas you are interested in, let us know and we gladly send
some good recommendations your way.

Good luck to you.

Hope this helps...
