However, tax rates have climbed in my locality substantially. I paid $6,100 last year alone and have for that reason alone, am considering moving after my son grads from HS. I love the home and area but paying 6,100 is way too high IMHO.

I don't pay much more than that in annual rent. So much for the old "you are throwing your money away by renting" canard that the real estate zealots like to recite.
