Keep in mind that any online information is only as good as the source feeding it; consider working with an agent of your own, he/she can provide all necessary information, schedule showings, keep you updated with suitable properties, etc.; or for tax information you can also check with the local tax assessor's office; for HOA charges, you can contact management directly, each complex is different.

Hi Ceci, typically this information is provided by the listing agent. One reason alot of sites don't include this information is they want you to call the agency. They feel that if all the information is given up front there won't be any reason to call unless you have definite interest in seeing it (marketing technique). Also the taxes, unless properly verified can be listed improperly so it's always best to have your Buyers Agent research for you anyway. I lived in Mt Kisco for a few years so any assistance you may need I would be happy to help.

The lilsting agent will include that information in the MLS posting. Trulia grabs it's data from the MLS.

Although agents are indeed careful and make sure to include the corrent information, it's always a good idea to ask your agent to double check the listed taxes and fees once you find a great home and before you make an offer.

Many towns post their taxes on line. In fact, several HOA's have web sites through their management companies and offer community details.

This purchase is too important not to triple-check. :)

Best of luck!
