what is the range of property taxes that people pay around the country? in Mpls/st.paul it is about 1% of the home value/yr. I watch a lot of tv shows about flipping houses and I see that homes in california are in the 500-700k range and I was wondering what the typical taxes are on a house valued like that? I assume it is different from area to area. is LA different than San Francisco? or does it vary from bakersfield to beverly hills? my BIL has a house worth 1million and his taxes are 12k/yr. yikes. thats a lot.
