Go to CCPAO.COM, Property Searches, the Data Searches... you can view information for any clay county house on the site. A little tip...sometimes you need to input the street address in all caps.

Under the property info, it will tell you tax exempt value... around that number to the nearest whole.. ex if says 93,550 round to 94, then look at school taxes.. usually will say 19(.something) or 16(.something), then multiple that by 94... again 94*16(or19)= 1504 divide by 12(number of months in year), and thats what you pay a month for property taxes.

For home ins. just call up any ins. company and ask them for a quote for the property. Tell them you're looking to purchase it and would like a quote.

I remember I called for a property that was 2022sq ft 4/2ba all brick home with in ground pool.. it was $108 a month.

Robert - Property taxes last year for this property were $780.20. This property has benefited from the Save Our Homes amendment, which keeps property taxes from increasing more than 3% per year in addition the homeowner has a $50,000 homestead exemption. You will benefit from these factors in your first year of ownership, however I would expect the property taxes to increase during your 2nd year of ownership. My estimation is probably $1250-$1500 per year.

Homeowners insurance is not "required" unless you borrow money for the purchase. I would estimate insurance for this property to be in the range of $800-$1200 per year.
