808 S. Holyoke for sale in Wichita, KS - Awesome starter with Workshop! - 12/03/09 06:06 PM
Are you ready to stretch out your wings? Want to break free of apartment cell living? Want a place to do your own thing without losing a deposit? You may want to consider owning - and I've got the perfect place! For the same or less than comparable rents, you could own this home. On an FHA mortgage, at 5% interest, no points, you could be looking at this home's payment being roughly $730/month. $3365 down payment, which can be borrowed/gifted from a relative if need be. (See below for details/disclaimer).
Particularly first time buyers, but also many others, have no idea what they need to know about Property Tax Values. For many of you, you've never owned a home and have had no need to know this information before now. And for those coming in from other areas, it may be handled differently there and this may be entirely new to you!

I invite you to visit the mature area of Sherwood Glen with me. Located in North-West Wichita, near 37th/Meridian, this area boasts mature homes - most with only 1-2 owners ever, large established trees and lawns, no special taxes (Aside from the County-wide $4.04), and convenient to everywhere by a quick hop onto 235/K-96.
I am a little surprised sometimes when I go to list a home and in my discussion bring out the property tax value - and the seller has no idea what that number means to them! This should not be - you need to know this number before you sell because it does and will impact you. For a rundown on how the property taxes in Sedgwick County work, visit my Property Tax 101 article.
In the meantime, I want you to pay attention (1 comments)
Everyone hates them but we can't really get around them, though many folks try. Today we're going to talk a little bit about your Sedgwick County property tax values. I'll be making this into two more posts - one from how it affects the Seller of real estate here, and the other about how it affects Buyers. To start though, a brief rundown:
Sedgwick County, KS practices mass appraisal. That means that they gather the data on your home and plug it into their computer. They gather sales data from every sale that occurs in (2 comments)
