When you are considering buying a Spring Texas home, there are a couple of things you need to know about real estate taxes.
1. Tax Amount Without Exemptions – The real estate taxes identified on a home’s listing is BEFORE / WITHOUT exemptions. You may qualify for a homestead, over 65, or disabled exemptions. All of these exemptions will reduce your Spring Texas real estate taxes. How much lower the real estate taxes will be for a property depends upon the exemptions and its location.

2. Tax Rates may be the prior year’s rates – The current year’s tax rates are adopted around the September or October time frame of the tax year. The tax rates on real estate websites may reflect the prior year’s tax rates and not the current year’s tax rates. The tax rates vary from year to year.
3. Tax assessed value – The county appraisal district establishes the tax assessed value as of the first of the tax year. The taxes on real estate websites reflect the prior year’s tax assessed value until the current year’s tax assessed value is certified.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
