There are all walks of life in Weston. Married, divorced, single, haves, have nots and in between.
I think the main reason for people wan to live in Weston is to have a healthy atmosphere for their families to grow and thrive. You will not feel out of place. Find that job and come on down!

Are the property taxes everywhere in Florida based on the same percentages, or does it differ from town to town or county to county? Is W Palm Bch Cty lower than Broward Cty??? I keep getting conflicting info. Thanks

Everyone gets a cut, the state, county, city, fire dept, garbage, education, etc...so it's a conglomerate figure for the different parts of the state depending on your county and city.

^^^That's a very general answer. Best to use property tax estimator at bcpa.net If you search exact address you can find the current taxes you would pay the first year as well.

A way we got around prop taxes was to buy a property with an ag exemption. This saves us approximately (using 2% figure) $10K per year.

agricultural exemption....these are given on acre and above properties that have devoted their land to agriculture. The most common way is to plant palm trees. We are a bit more involved in commerce as we have a wholesale container plant nursery. So there is income above the $10K, but it requires work. Worked for me as stay-at-home Mom till very recently. Due to economy, property would be better off with palm trees right now. Horses can also get you this exemption.
