How important are property taxes in deciding to purchase a home?

Property taxes could be a determining factor in choosing one area over another. Make sure you check what percentage of the home’s sale price will be paid in taxes before deciding to buy a house. A city with very high taxes will charge you a larger percentage of the homes selling price than a more affordable city.
