>>The main reason I mentioned it was because of the taxes. Just wondering if people thought $3000 a year for property taxes on a $100,000 home was high, low or just right? Or do most people rent?
For a home with a market value of $100,000 (not assessed value, which is meaningless), $3,000 / year seems about right to me.
Here in New Jersey, where home prices are relatively high, a $1,000,000 USD home would pay around $30,000 USD in property taxes. :(
