The best counties for property taxes by region – Time to move to Klamath County!

By Yascha Noonberg, May 24, 2018

Recently, information company RewardExpert released its ranking of the Best U.S. Counties for Property Taxes — in hopes of helping prospective homebuyers catch a break on their next property purchase. “Buying a home is a big move and is often a family’s biggest financial investment,” said RewardExpert co-founder and CEO Roman Shteyn in a press release. “It can seem unfair to continue paying for a house that has already been bought and paid for, so choosing the right place to invest can help mitigate long-term expenses.”

The report identified the top five counties in the six major geographical regions of the country: northeast, south atlantic, south central, midwest, mountain west, and pacific west. The full report can be viewed here

Klamath County, which lies on the southern border of Oregon, thus takes first place for simple and straightforward reasons: it is home to some of the most modestly priced real estate in the region (the median sale price is $194,000), it charges a reasonable tax rate of 1.23 percent, and Oregon has no property transfer tax. While the average tax bill of $2,378 is high compared to counties in other regions, this figure is lower than in any other county in the Pacific West with a population greater than 25,000.

My professional life started with owning and operating a music school and recording studio in SE Portland. Eventually I was drawn to real estate both as an investor and subsequently as a consultant to homebuyers and sellers as well as fellow real estate investors. My family and I have lived on both sides of the river, and we spend a lot of our down time at the coast in Manzanita. My real estate business and family keep me very busy but whenever possible I get out on the courts to compete in tennis leagues and tournaments, and I recently started playing Pickleball. I also mix in the occasional gig or young audiences performance with local jazz group Trashcan Joe.
