How Much are the Real Estate Taxes on West Hartford, CT, Homes for Sale?

Many times when I send listings "automatically" to my clients, and they

include homes for sale in West Hartford, Connecticut. my clients question the amount of the taxes.  A few years ago, West Hartford, Connecticut, had a revaluation on the assessed values for homes and decided to do a phase-in of the taxes.  As happened in many towns, the phase-in was not well received, and the phase-in was discontinued.

However, the Taxes tab in our multiple listing service still links to the tax records for the full "end of phase-in" assessments, so if the Broker does not double check this amount, the information on a listing can be completely wrong.

For example, one of my past listings has a current

assessment of $197,566 and taxes of $7,5 83 for the current year.  If a Broker went by the tax records on the ML

S, they would show an assessment of $249,700 with taxes of $9,583.  This $2,000 difference could be enough to make a buyer decide they do not want to see that house.

So just how much are the real estate taxes on West Hartford, CT, Homes for Sale ?  The Town of West Hartford offers a handy residential property tax estimator tool that allows you to enter the address of any West Hartford Home for Sale and find out exactly what the taxes should be.  Buyers and sellers alike will find this tool quite useful.
