Hi, I am seriously considering relocating to either Coopersburg or Kintnersville. Does anyone have information on average property taxes? I would be looking to spend 300-$350K on a house and most likely not have more than one acre of property (given my budget and lack of need for too much land.) Thanks!!

Default Thanks...

I went to college in Scranton so have some PA experience. I might actually start considering NEPA again if the Lehigh Valley is too costly. I now live in Hunterdon County, NJ and of course want to flee the NJ property tax situation like everyone else.

I'll send you a PM with tax info. No need to post it here. I love Coopersburg. If you do a search with the words Coopersburg or Southern Lehigh you'll see my previous comments.

NEPA/Scranton isn't a bad place to call home, but the employment outlook is ABYSMAL. We currently have the state's highest unemployment rate, and that's NOT something we want to brag about. The number of college graduates working beside me at a big-box store earning $20,000-$25,000 per year should be perfect evidence of how many UNDEREMPLOYED people there are in NEPA/Scranton.

For how gosh-darn over-inflated the housing prices are in the Lehigh Valley, at least there are QUALITY EMPLOYERS there to justify raking people over the coals for homes that would sell for half the price just an hour up the turnpike.

Not sure about Coopersburg but in Kintnersville your property taxes will depend on the age of your home. I would say a home that cost around 350,000 if fairly new would have a tax of around 4500.00 to 5000.00 yearly. We pay 6000 a year on our home with a market value just under 500 k
