I was very curious about property tax in dollars, like waterdog14 above.
Very high property valuations are closely linked with property tax rates in the big cities.
As an aside, one of the urgent care doctors I used to work with came into a big inheritance and was able to buy in cash a large beach house On the cliffs overlooking the ocean in Aptos, CA (Santa Cruz County, CA). However, despite owning the house outright, he continued to need to work almost full time to pay the $44,000 / year property tax.
Chose carefully where you will retire. Property tax, rather than income tax, becomes the big issue.
