Me and my fiancee are currently planning to move to the Huntington Station area because of it's proximity to her work (East Northport) and the Huntington train station. She currently lives with her mom at Highview (the subdivision of townhouses across the Huntington Train Station) and I was shocked that her mom pays around $11,000 of property tax for a $250,000 3 br townhouse.

Just want to seek some advice if it is still really possible to get a house at $350,000 - $375,000 range at the Huntington Station Area (north of the railroad) or Huntington area paying only around $6000/year in property tax. I've been browsing at different realtor websites, and I've seen different houses that have a $6,000 to $7,000 range in terms of property taxes.

I am currently in contract for a house in Huntington Station (informally S. Huntington since it's considered a different real estate market).
What we've bee consistently seeing is $400k - $450k with taxes ranging from $4000 to 9000. We're buying $400k with taxes of $7700. (These are all in decent shape, 3-4 BR.)

Those numbers are without the NYS STAR rebate, which, when I am eligible, will reduce my tax by about $900.
