That is scary. We've been contemplating quake insurance, but the premiums are ridonculous, huge deductibles, like, 25% of the value of the home. So what's the point?

I remember seeing a property listing prior to the bursting bubble that yes, was $20k/month. Mantoloking. The ocean front homes are multi-million dollar properties, and the township is dealing with some major infrastructure issues, like keeping the barrier island, on which these properties lie, from washing further south. It's highly likely that things have changed with lowered values (after the crash) and reassessments.

Obviously, it would depend on the assessed value of the property but are you sure they pay $20K a month in property tax in Coastal NJ?  $240K a year in property tax alone?  That would have to be a billion-dollar property.

Essex County property owners were saddled with the highest (annual) taxes, at an average of $11,550, followed by Bergen County at $11,311 and Union County at $10,821.

Massachusetts has lower property tax rates than NJ, even the average yearly amount is least than $3K on Nantucket where the average home value is $2M.

It's highly likely that things have changed with lowered values (after the crash) and reassessments. I'm seeing today that a $9M home's monthly tax burden is just under $4k. So perhaps things have settled down.

That would be a bargain for ocean-adjacent properties in the Northeast. My sister pays a lot more than that for her little house on Plum Island, MA. There are some homes on the New Joy Sea shore that are paying ten times that/month. Which is why we don't live there.

As the crow flies, this one is about 1200 miles (give or take a hundred miles) from either ocean and over 200 miles to the Gulf of Mexico.  Hell, it's not even lake or riverfront (although it is a lovely old neighbourhood).

That's how they do it in Washington as well. But we are now learning that if you continue to vote for things (50 billion dollar trains, high school campuses with stadiums, more government services to provide more free stuff), then the only way to pay for it is ever rising taxes.  No one is happy about high property taxes, or thousand dollar car registration fees, but they keep voting for more free stuff, and people keep moving here so I bet it will continue.

Well, here in Texas, it's not the infrastructure that gets the funds, but tax cuts to businesses, so the average citizen bears the brunt of supporting the fiscal status quo. It's really fun when they turn public roads into toll roads, so even when you pay taxes that go toward road maintenance (vehicle registration and the like), you have to pay further to get almost anywhere.

Great! We are teaching ourselves through doing, it is a lot of work and money, but well worth it.


Check out what these guys have been doing. Very similar to what you want. Plus their music is GREAT!
