Missouri Ozarks, small rural town
$220K Home value
$980 property taxes
$2100 insurance (We had a roof claim due to wind damage in 2019 so the premium was jacked up. Should be closer to $1500 without that gust up.)

Not in my case. $7,500 taxes after homestead and veteran's exemptions for a .9 acre parcel and 3,000 SF house in Southern ME, worth about $700,000. Without the exemptions taxes would be $8,000.

If you own a home, and would like to share, what do you pay for property taxes and hazard insurance?

Please don't use your assessed value. I realize we all have different deductibles on hazard but just wanted to get a picture of different states. Let us know if you live near the coast as that will skew the hazard insurance.

Reside In
NC

Current Estimated Home value $300,000

Property Taxes
$2,612

Hazard Insurance
$715

Thanks

Kevin


Who’s your insurer ? What’s your deductible. Im paying too high

Electric Insurance Company. Have auto and home.

Excellent customer service, very reasonable rates and over the years I've had several claims, all handled professionally and efficiently.

Deductible is $2,500 with 2% wind and hail.

One big difference is if the house is inside city limits, that can make a 25% difference in overall property taxes. Of course at least in Tx if outside the city you do have to pay for trash removal which is like 1100 a year or so. May also have fire district and emergency district taxes (on the order of 100 to 200 a year).

Wow, that seems really steep. We live out in the county and pay $280/yr for twice a week pick up.

Yeah, you’ll be getting a supplemental tax bill soon enough. Expect it to be around $18k/year.

SW FL home market value: ~$350k
> ~4 miles from the coast
Property tax: ~$3k
Homeowners insurance: ~$1.3k
> 10% hurricane deductible; calculated from replacement cost
> premium increased 20% year-over-year; I expect it will continue to increase in the future

Folks who dream of moving to FL for "lower taxes" sometimes forget the potential "tax" on your quality of life if you have to relocate for a year or more while your home is rebuilt after a hurricane. I suggest moving to central TX instead.

Again it likely depends on where in Florida you are talking about. Consider lake city where I 10 and I 75 intersect it is about as far from coasts as possible in Fl and only about 60 miles from Jacksonville. Being at least 60 miles from the coast if you buy out of a flood plain damage risk is less.And yes this far north in Fl id does freeze.

Birmingham, about the same home value
Property taxes: $2500 (expensive for this state - next county over would be ~$900)

Given what I've seen in here the insurance is expensive here. I guess tornadoes or I'm just paying too much.
