Welcome to the ZipRealty community! Thank you for posting in the forums.
I will contact one of the local agents to see if they are able to answer this question for you.

Laveen taxes are similar to other communities. Is there a particular house that you are looking at? Maybe it is on a larger lot or new construction or something else makes it more valuable. Feel free to send me the address of the house and I can take a look at it. My email is email@example.com. Regards, Johannes Rath

I have been looking at homes with around an acre of land that have 3 beds and 2 baths. All of the Laveen homes I have looked at are over $2000 in property taxes. Similar homes in Gendale, Avondale, Buckeye, Surprise are for the most part under that.

Property taxes in Maricopa county are generally 0.8% to 1% of the last sale price. Not including trustee sales. Many of the properties in the county, including Laveen which has a higher than average forclosure rate, reflect the taxes before the decline in property values. The property taxes on any recently sold property should "adjust" during the next valuation period. However, new property owners can challenge the current tax and request a re-valuation of the tax.
Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me. Just click on my photo and then click on "My personal web page" link.

We have challend our taxes and they we'nt lower because the assors said the taxes on evaluation back 2 years ago. Taxes should reflect lower evauations in the next few years to come. JF
