Want to estimate property tax on a listing you’re interested in buying?
1.2% of the purchase price is a good, conservative rule of thumb. This is the annual amount but property tax is paid twice a year.
For example, on a $900,000 home, the annual property tax will be about $10,800.
Your lender will estimate this as a monthly payment when computing your PITI.
P= Principal loan payment
I= Loan interest payment
T= Tax payment (figured monthly)
I= Insurance payment (figured monthly)
In an condo, instead of PITI, use PIT-HOA since your HOA condo fee will cover the building’s insurance. You should get your own policy for the interior and your personal belongings…
