Buying a South Florida Oceanfront Condo? How Much Are My Taxes Going To Be?

South Florida Oceanfront Condo and Beach

Our clients whether establishing a primary residence or as second home buyers, need to know how taxes will affect them. Questions regarding taxes on second home purchases or primary homes can be addressed by our local Property Appraiser websites. They offer estimating tools, to help buyers figure out their tax implications. Taxes vary somewhat from county to county as well as from city to city.

The links below provide useful tools to estimate taxes on  purchases.  Palm Beach County does not offer an Estimator on line, however, they had a   short interesting explanation on condominium assessments. I have included an excerpt below.

Q. How is condominium property assessed?

Q. What is a condominium unit and how are they appraised?
