    It all depends on location. 4000 sqft for $400k must be in the suburbs
    If you were to buy 4000 sqft in prime areas even in Tx you are talking in the couple of millions

    you might get more for your dollar sq ft wise in Texas, but property tax is killer here.

    that's a beautiful house!!

    I was getting ready to mention that.. just relocated from TX to TN.. Same mortgage payment almost buys twice the house here due to the difference in property tax..

    i could have build the same house in a prime area in dallas $600-$650. Since Plano is only 20-30 min away it seem great buy. or i could have build the same house in Garland for $260K. But as far as i know i live in a prime area of Plano.

    Really? I've heard this before but I had always thought our property taxes where high enough. Can't imagine having to pay much more?

    mine is a tad under 10K but you have to remember you only pay federal tax no city or state.

    We also pay no state or city income tax. My real estate tax bill (city and county) is a bit higher than yours. However, our house is also a bit larger than yours and, unfortunately, due to the neighbourhood, about three times the price, so it sounds like we're talking in the range of TX taxes being 3x those in TN on a $ for $ basis. Ouch!
