What would the property taxes be on a newly built 3,000sq ft single home in Lower Southampton Township?

Asked by Army Veteran, 19053 Tue Jan 20, 2009

The township millage is 14.08. Before I build I'd like to know what the taxes would be for a 3,000 sq ft home.

Here's a link to a 3 year old, 3,100 sq. ft. home in Feasterville: http://www.ephiladelphiarealestate.com/idx/listings/5435980/…

You can see that the property taxes are $9,730. This should give you a rough idea of what to expect in L. Southampton. My office is in Feasterville, so I'm very familiar with this area.

If you call the tax accessors office In Lower Southampton Township and give them the information on the home they will be able to tell you. ( give or take a little bit) There phone number is easily assesable (sp??) through the internet.

Hope I've helped.

Thank you and good luck,

You also need to include county and school district milage in your calculations, currently the total milage for L. Southampton is in excess of 185. The final assessment of the property will of course be based on the lot size as well as the building square footage, but recently constructed homes of about 3000 sf on roughly 1/3 acre have been assessed between 55-60k, so the taxes are in excess of $10000.

Of course you should contact the authority at the township for more info on your particular situation...

Best of luck!

Thank you for your service.

This would all depend on what the value of the home is. There are some 2600 sq ft new homes with a $5800 tax on them recently listed. I would guess that a 3000 sq ft home would cost around $500K or so. So I would think the taxes would be at least $7K.

Are you looking to just build in the area or are you just trying to figure out your options? Feel free to give me a call or email me. I am prior service myself and 10% of my commissions go to helping those in or from the military.

Hope that helps.
