I believe that when you purchase a home you should be fully informed in every
aspect of that purchase. What will my new taxes be? What is the sales history on

results in a lower purchase price for a comparable home. One of the things you
should consider is the difference fuel expense as well as the difference in
mortgage payment and taxes. So below is a comparison calculator to help you
make that very important decision.
