Property taxes vary by area, by parents live in Bazetta Township (Cortland zip code 44410) in $300k house. They also have almost an acre and they pay around $4200/year. When i lived in Niles i had a 2700 sq/ft, $80k house and i paid something like $1200/year, so it all depends on the area. Here is a break down of trumbull county: Trumbull County Auditor (http://www.auditor.co.trumbull.oh.us/auditor_taxrates.htm - broken link)

Looks like Hubbard and Liberty have the highest taxes.

Some areas also have a city tax (wage tax), but i'm not for sure which ones. I do know that Niles, Warren, and Youngstown have a wage tax. I think Lordstown, Girard, and some others might as well.

Oh yeah, and Trumbull County has a 6.5% sales tax, although food is not taxed. Mahoning County's rate is higher. Also, Pa doesn't tax clothes, so you might want to check out the Shenango Valley Mall (very small) or the Grove City Outlets.

I don't know a whole lot about Hubbard, but when i was in high school they were in our conference, so i have been there several times. My cousin just moved there and she loves it, so it can't be all bad (she grew up in an upper middle class area).

Anyway, I believe Hubbard High school is something like the 3rd of 4th largest in the county, they probably have around 200 graduates per class. The city is pretty close to the Pa border and i believe the city of Youngstown, Liberty Township and the Pa border may all border the city. The area also has good access to I-80.

I may try to help some more later, but i have to leave for work. Have a great day!

Default lordstown GM

I'm in the process of leaving the area. My husband took the buy-out from Delphi, and although he still works at Delphi, he works for a contracting company. We're afraid that he'll be out of a job shortly, so we're making a move, but to be honest, things look like they're picking up again, with the 3rd shift being added at Lordstown. I kinda wish we weren't leaving.
I have a really nice 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on 2.6 acres with a horse barn, lots of landscaping, finished basement, sunroom, family room, living room, dining room, and 2.5 car garage. We live in Howland, which has a good school system. The elementary school is about 2 miles from my home, the mall and Super Kmart are about 3 miles away, Wallmart is about 5 miles away and Lordstown plant is at the most 20 minutes away. Just for compairson, I would love to get $200,000 for my home, and the taxes are about $2500/year.

Howland is a really nice area very close to the Eastwood Mall. The schools are decent but the diversity in income levels really shows (there are wealthy and poor areas that attend) and kids tend to stay within those class clicks. There are some nice neighborhood parks and golf courses nearby. As mentioned there are houses in all price ranges in Howland. IMO you might wanna try Champion or Lordstown. Both have smaller schools (Lordstown has graduating classes about 40!) so you get private school atmosphere with the lowest taxes around and Champion is larger but still half the size of Howland.

I really wouldn't look at living in Lordstown, it's a pretty rural area and the school are nice but very small and they don't even have high school football there. What is your price range? I see you said something about renting, i don't think Lordstown has any rentals, you'll probably have to look into Warren, Niles, Howland, Boardman or Austintown. If you give us a price range we could probably give you some advice on good rentals, schools, apartment communities, etc. You may be able to find a house to rent if you're interested in that too.
