Watch out for property taxes wow. Also to get to one half of city is only by a toll road which is one of the most expense toll road in USA. It is more expense than the turnpike.
WHAT????? Do you mean that you lived in the Cypress AREA? In Harris county? Meaning, you lived in SPRING, TX. Also, the taxes in that area are WAY less than they are in Austin, Dallas OR San Antonio. And interestingly enough, our Dallas taxes were about the same as we are paying here in MI, if not a little less.

I'm not sure about the most "expense" toll road, but I do know that when I go to Chicago, I pay a TON more there, than I ever did in Texas. You can also use your Toll Tag (Dallas) or EZ Tag (Houston) at any toll road in the state, as well as at the airports.

Default Hello

Spring Texas and Cypress are different. They are about 39 min apart not sure the last time you lived there. I know for the house we own in Cypress, TX under 200,000 is close to 7,500 in property tax. It was build brand new. About the toll road it all depend on where in Houston you need to drive. Like getting to work on one side of Houston if you live in certain parts of the metro require the use of toll road. Like for example the turnpike that we use to travel from city to city but the toll road in Houston is used within the city. It was 4.50 to drive to work and 4.50 to drive home plus gas. I even had a EZ tag. My drive to work was 23 miles which can take 33 min or over an hour in traffic. If you compare to driving on turnpike it prices high for very few miles you drive on it. Houston has 103 miles of Toll road that only Run in Metro Houston. They have 3 different Toll roads and some do not take cash.
