New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation. Of course, it is possible to find an area of NH with higher taxes than an area in NJ but on a whole, NJ is top for this one. Like MightyQueen said, from our perspective, pretty much everywhere else is cheap in that regard. So (depending on where you live in NJ but for the most part) I think NH's taxes will be lower.

Well, if you're only talking about the northern half of the east coast, I would say Richmond, Philly, central CT and western MA and parts of NH and ME. Really, it's just DC, Baltimore, NJ, the NYC and Boston areas that are extremely expensive.

Annapolis is not generally considered affordable.

The problem is getting a job there.

Edit: I just did a quick lookup on Portland, Maine, which I've been to a number of times. A 2 bedroom condo the same approximate square footage as mine (942) runs $115K - $125K. I paid $180K for mine two years ago. And Portland is the largest city in the state! I'm 45 miles from my job because I couldn't afford anything that's closer to Manhattan. I bet they don't pay $4,000 in taxes on those condos, either.

As I said, it's all perspective.

Actually, Maine in general has high property taxes. Western mass can be over 20% in property taxes. NH, RI and MA are also up there.

20% in property taxes? What do you mean by that?

Delaware, as has been mentioned. Great location, and a tax-free state. In the midst of a boom, plenty of affordable housing, and relatively mild weather.
