Before Purchasing a House FAQ

Before purchasing a house:


  • Check in with your County Assessor.
  • Ask about the current taxes and what exemptions are currently on the property
  • Ask for an estimate of taxes based on a possible selling price
  • Ask what exemption you may be eligible for
  • Ask for a property record card. This will show you what is on the tax roll.
  • Check the history of the house, was it recently rehabbed.
