Get a property tax break

In a number of states, you can benefit from a homestead exemption, which gives you a break on your property taxes.

"This differs vastly not only from state to state, but from county to county as well," says Bill Golden, an independent real estate agent with RE/MAX Atlanta Cityside.

Some states allow those who have their principle residence in the state to file for a homestead exemption, while others only offer the property tax break to certain groups, such as those over the age of 65 or disabled military veterans.
