You may not be able to find out online. It depends on the town tax office ... if they are online ... you can get it.

Probably the best (and easiest) is to call the tax office in the town of your prospective house. Ask for the total true taxes both town and county as well as school and they'll be able to get those for you.

If this is going to be your promary residence ... you may qualify for the STAR rebate and you can ask them that amount at the same time.

Good luck!

You generated this question because you suspect you should use a different lawyer......and we would agree. Doing so will keep it cleaner and remove any doubt later that your interests were not represented best.

There are plenty of attorneys out there, it's a matter of making the effort to identify the right one.

Good luck,

This is a Million dollar question. The bootm of the market is only known by historical data. You and everyother home owner will determine when the bottom of the real estate market will have happened. You say that the economy will continue to erode. that is 1 mans opinion and a great one. You can only decide. there will be no clear indicator of the bottom until it has happened.

The national economy and workd economy is in the hands of no one person. But you can help or hinder the progress by you personal decisions. In this market buying and selling in a single time frame is the key. What ever the market values is you are shipting your assets in one time frame. I just sold in Las Vegas Nevada and bought in St George Utan. The paper values have shifted but the value of home ownership is the same since man sold caves as homes.

Put your twin home on the market find a replacement you and your family will love and coinsied the move of assets in one time frame is my advice

Your best advice would be to contact the police department in that area and ask them what type of incidents they have had and how many. They have all that information and it's public.

Derek Joyner answered:
A lot of people loose out on a great home by waiting and thinking they will get a better deal later. I dont know your market place, but I will tell you I think waiting is a bad idea. I would start looking and find a really motivated seller before waiting. The national banks are pushing for higher interest rates. They want them to go back up. They say it is effecting our moneys worth overseas. I dont understand all that, but I know the banks are doing everything they can to get the interest up. The loans are tightening up. If you wait it might cost you on the loan side. I will tell you I have noticed a lot of times real estate does not usually hit a bottom and than start to turn. It will usually bounce off the bottom. Noone really knows where the bottom is. It is a guessing game. And if you dont read the reports monthly, you may never know when that time is. It is hard to ask agents if it is at the bottom as well. We all have different opinions as to where the bottom is. Bottom line (LOL) I think the longer you wait the more it will hurt you on the loan side. Can you win on the house side, maybe. So go with what you know and dont pay attention to what could be. Just my 2 cent. ... more
