When buying a home, everyone tends to say “location, location, location” but what is so important about the location? There are many factors, but knowing the property tax is a crucial part of searching for a home. That one simple fact could sway your decision of which house on your list is going to be the one. More than just the overall cost of the home, the yearly taxes in each town can make or break whether a home fits into your budget. Even just looking one town over from your dream location could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in taxes in just one year.
There is an easy tool to compare tax rates on the Official New Hampshire government website. So, whether you are buying a new construction home or you are in the resale market, it is important to compare tax rates as you compare home prices.
