What size of town are you looking for? Property taxes vary from town to town so there is no set rate that you can find on this forum. If you do locate a area that you are interest in you would need to contact the county assesor's office to determine the property taxes for that town.

Land and home costs are higher in the eastern part of the state than it is in the western part. This is because most of the people live in the eastern part of the state. So the farther west you go the cheaper the land and homes will become.

You can go to Woods Brother Realty, Gateway Realty, or Better Homes are some of the major realtors in the State that I can think of. They have many local Realtors that are not on line. You would have to check the local telephone numbers and either call them on the telephone or send them a letter to discuss what they might have on hand in your price range.

I hope that this is of some help. I have lived in both the western, central and eastern parts of Nebraska so I can about answer most of your questions that you might have. If not I will try to send you to someone who can help you.

Singlefamily,

The places that you mentioned, to many in Omaha and Lincoln, are nearly considered eastern (or out-state) Nebraska (mind you to many it has nothing to do with how far west or east the town is). I've lived in central Nebraska, Lincoln, and now Omaha. To those from the metro its Omaha and Lincoln and then the rest of the state. And in terms of property value...that's probably pretty accurate. That said, the places you mentioned will have pretty low property values relative to Lincoln and Omaha.

Of the places you mentioned I would suggest Norfolk, its by far the larger of the list, but is yet pretty small (~20,000). You certainly could find a nice place for $75,000 in and around Norfolk. Also, keep in mind that in the more rural areas you can get land that is zoned for agriculture and is much much cheaper than land that would be found on the edges of larger cities.

Norfolk is a nice community. There are 4 different high schools to choose from: Public, Norfolk Catholic, Lutheran Northeast, and another private one that I can't remember. Housing isn't too bad here either ESPECIALLY if you buy. Renting something decent, you will pay around $600 for a 3 bedroom. You could get a house, esp. in the 75K area for cheaper house payments than that.
We have a decent mall, a Target, Wal-mart, ShopKo, and other various stores to shop at. Many car dealers and banks. A good size amount of restaurants. (Whiskey Creek is the best!) Two swimming pools, 3 golf courses, a great hospital, YMCA, family fun center with go carts- baseball- water boats, a few parks, an arts center, museum, mini-golf, etc. We have a community college that is great. Probably a lot of the same things other cities our size have.
Good luck and hope you choose Norfolk!

I will agree with JeNiFerR about Norfolk. About any town that is close to Norfolk would be good as well. Madison is a town that you would need to take a real close look at. Norfolk does have every thing that you might want to find. They also have great people living there as well.

I have given this to several individuals who ask about the weather of Nebraska. It has a lot of information that you can check out. I am sure that you will find answers to your questions here. You will even get to see pictures of our storms. They even have sites where you can see other parts of the world as well. Enjoy the surfing of this site.

Nebraska Weather and Climate

As for your kids making good friends I am sure that no matter where you go be it Nebraska or another state your kids will find friends. The number of friends will be up to how they interact with the other kids around them. I have raised three kids all in Nebraska. We moved several times to different areas they always found friends, just have to be careful of the kinds of friends that they are. Just like you have to do where you are at now.

We live 50 miles from Norfolk and it seems a nice town with a wide variety of services. Weather in Nebr. can be brutal in the winter, but you learn to live with it. And not all winter is bad; just a few snowstorms here and there. Summers lately have been very humid, but temps don't usually stay if they do hit 100. There are plenty of realtors to check into on the web, and you may like checking into a smaller town's availability also. If you want a farm with even an acre, plan on spending $100,000 at least. Taxes vary city to city; some very high I noticed! Good luck and welcome!
