    Our property taxes are stupid low at 700/year. The house is valued between 350-400k. I wonder if the sales tax different in different counties.

    Holy cow that's low. We're $5200 for both and value of each is 275-300k. And I thought our taxes were low!

    Taxes are partially based on age of home and ours was built in 1950. Would be higher if newer.

    I have to disagree with you on that … My previous house I purchased in 1989 I paid 125k for it and the taxes were 1500. I sold in 2003 for 500K and my taxes were over 5000. no remodel or up grades to make the value go up

    It sold 2 years ago for over one million as a tear down. It was built in 1978. one acre, 1700 sq ft 3 bdrm 2 full bath, 2+ car attached garage with a 4 stall monitor style barn. There is now 5 houses on it and they are priced in the mid 900K each

    Boss, I am talking Nevada only. Here the age of the home is factored into the tax formula. I have lived in 5 other states that did Not do that. When I lived in a newer house not worth as much my taxes were higher.

    The feeling of being "home" in an actual house is not something I understand. Please describe it.

    I think I understand the general feeling of being "home" though. I remember feeling a certain emotional sensation when I was married and we had both Harlan and Lilith. I remember thinking: "This is what it feels like to be at home."

    But the feeling was just being with my then wife and both my pups.

    I had not felt that way before.

    But I will say I had a feeling akin to "home" in Israel. I just felt so comfortable and happy there. I did not want to leave. I did not want to go back to the US. I only missed my dog.
