I know we've posted these Kent County sites (noted below) before but there's still a lot of confusion regarding real estate taxes (property tax) in Delaware. Taxes are calculated on Assessed Value of the property (not on appraised value) and just on real estate we own. Each school district has different assessments for figuring county taxes to be paid, and our tax bills are calculated, per hundred dollars of assessed value. On this site you can also find a list of school districts, and how much per hundred dollars they use for calculating the school tax.

Also, on this Kent County site, you can plug in a street address, a name, and even a subdivision to see what our individual tax bills are. When you open up a tax bill on any individual property, it will show a breakdown of the tax bill, i.e. school tax, library tax, etc.

For Example: Our personal Kent County tax bill is $286/per year, and we own our land. We do not live in a restricted community, have no lot rent, and have no homeowner association fees. Our property is in the mid-priced range.

To figure out how much it will cost you to live on your property in Kent County, click the first link PRIDE System, and then the Square saying "Property Pride Information".

1) Start with the Kent County tax bill. If you don't know what your Kent County tax bill might be, enter the subdivison's name you think you will live in and look at all the tax bills those people pay. Or, enter a street name if you don't know the subdivision's name. Or, enter the last name of a person. It's all there in public record.
2) Add the homeowner association fee per year (if applicable)
3) Add the Lot rent per year (if applicable)
Total it up, and you've got a good estimate of what your property costs might be.

There's an abundance of information here, which also includes the over 65 years of age reduction in school taxes.
Again, in the PRIDE link, click the Square that says "Property Pride Information". In the second link, play around with the site and in the left column and/or right column, there will be selections so that you can find any and all the information you might need, including a specific tax map of your property (not if you are a tenant of the land, i.e. 'lot rented').

Mod cut - Removed Realtor advertising quote

In my appraisal it said the HOA was still $300 annual! Oh well, we knew it was going up nor is another $30 a year all that much.

There is someone on this forum that currently lives in Chestnut Ridge......and my husband and I will be moving in at the end of the month.

I also think that clubhouse is rather large, especially when I compare it to the clubhouse (or lack their of) and pool that my brother's community deals with in the Northern Virginia. This clubhouse will have a lot more to offer than most (and if you look at communities near by, they don't even have clubhouses)
