Re: value ,location and taxes on your home

Prince George's County, MD

Home value $600,000. Most of the value is in the land, 4.28 acres. House is about 1500 square feet, 3 br/1ba, built in 1916. 3 outbuildings: 10x20 garage (dirt floor and needs a lot of work, probably DETRACTS from the value! 12x16 tin storage shed. Both of these date back to at least 1934, which is when my Grandma first came to this area, and they were there then. 24x40 garage I just had built last year. Neighbor's house, identical-sized lot but swampier is currently on the market for $599K. The house itself is probably a teardown special at this point. So I figure mine should be worth at least that.

Property taxes: $2800 (with homestead tax credit) Also, assessment doesn't show the new garage yet.
Homeowner's insurance: $795 per year

Texas, like Florida, has no state income tax.
Washington looks better all the time - we have no state income tax either, but my property taxes still seem low compared to most of what I'm reading here. * *We fund our state through sales taxes, which works out really well for us LBYM'ers. Everyone else pays when they buy their toys and cars and gadgets.

IIRC the deductible is 15% of house value (not land, just house). There's a faultline here--there was a bad quake in the late 1800s, and our house is brick. EQ insurance represents 1/3-1/2 of our bill. And there's hurricane and umbrella coverage, too. Plus I'm not sure if DH accounted for the return of "dividends" (this is Amica) when he gave me the number last night. Sorry--finance-wise, he deals with insurance and bill-paying; I just do the investing and thinking about the future.

The typical hazards. The "no fire protection" comment refers to the fact we have no viable fire department in the area which really jacks up my HO rates.
