Will be moving to TC in the next few months. I have been in the area several times and feel that each city has plenty to offer. Are there any major variances in property taxes between the three? I'm leaning toward Kennewick right now. Housing prices seem pretty comparable in each city. Houses certainly don't last long on the market though.

The "Average Effective Property Rate" in Franklin County is 1.15%, while in Benton County it is slightly lower at 1.04%. However, the median home price in Franklin County is $177,400, while the median home price in Benton County (Richland/Kennewick) is $198,600.

Franklin County (Pasco) is less expensive in general for a similar home found in Kennewick or Richland.

OP, where will you work? If work is in North Richland, as it is for me, if you live in Pasco or Kennewick, you have to drive the length of Richland to get to work and back home. Not that it's a horrible commute, but why sign up for it if you don't need to?

Of the three my personal choice is Kennewick because there is more shopping and restaurants there and I feel it's the easiest city to get around in.

Hello, I will be working by the HAPO Center (the TRAC) on the western edge of Pasco.

Yes, these are big reasons why I like it too.

West Pasco isn’t bad. Nice newer area and as I mentioned somewhat lower housing prices. Plenty of restaurants along Road 68.

It's West Richland, Richland, Kennewick, then Pasco in desirability and housing prices in that order. West Richland and Richland have lower crime and better schools but if those don't matter much to you, Kennewick has more commercial activity and services. Guess we're Richland snobs and wouldn't seriously consider Pasco or Kennewick.

West Richland is nice but my only complaint would be it somewhat isolated from shopping and restaurants. The Queensgate area is the closest but other than wal mart and target there isn’t much there. But this area continues to grow, mostly to the west, even further out.
