Houston home value, Houston home prices, and Houston property tax information

It's tempting. I might have to splurge.

Also, I notice that in houses in the Pine Valley Meadows in 77088 are very inexpensive but with the highest property taxes. Does anybody know why? Bad area? Too much taxes prevents people from buying there?

I don't know how 77088 is honestly, but it's probably not nice if it's so cheap.

Regarding that Sagemont area home, the reason it's cheap is likely because it's probably the nicest house in that whole zip code. Sagemont for the most part is not a bad neighborhood but it's not really good and has its rough spots. Kirkwood is right next door, which is mostly trashed. If you picked up that house and planted it in the more desirable parts of Clear Lake (77059), it'd probably be about $350k.

If you planted it in OC it'd probably be $1M.

That area would be like living in Inglewood(CA), It would run you about 700,000.00 give or take.

The property taxes out there are going to be set by the MUD. This is why you have different rates out there. One MUD might be different from another. It's better that way. You in one subdivision pay for your infrastructure that had to be built when the houses were built. I'm 100% cool with that, but I can see how it gets confusing to outsiders.

Default Nice house...

I don't know what it would cost in California (a lot), but that is a really nice house and seems like an excellent buy for the price it's listed at. A house like that in a nice neighborhood in Michigan would be about 400k+.

In Northern Cal, it would run about 1.5mil, at almost 3400 square feet. I would think that LA would be the same...maybe a tad less, depending on where it is.
