How is US31?
Is it a good track?
Trying to locate where I can get some decent property and pay under $1700.00 a year in taxes.

State income tax, plus county income tax; total approximately 7.5%
Sales tax 6.0% with 9.0% on beer, wine, alcohol.
Property taxes just depend on where you compare it to.

I lived in Annapolis, MD from 1983 to 1997. Nice place. Traffic going east on the summer weekends toward the beaches is bad at the Chesapeake Bay bridge.
And property values (cost) and taxes anywhere near Annapolis are going to be high. For example, current price of the house I lived in 1995 is $470,000 on 0.4 acres, and property tax $4,500/year. 567 Woodberry

That house is extremely expensive for the size of that house.
Unless it has huge acreage.
I was looking at homes in New Castle and Elkton.
Nice 3500 sq. Foot house is $309,000 on 1.4 acres.
Just trying to get in the middle of MIR and Cecil County, leaning towards Cecil more.
And not be too far from the beach if possible.

I'm in Baltimore. 1 hr to Cecil, 1 1/2 hr to MIR and used to be 35 min to Capitol. I'll be spending most of my year at Cecil to run the UNSS class.

Not a bad track. 1/4 mile track but they mostly do 1/8 mile currently. They also have a dirt track and go kart track also. Usually race on Sundays in the spring and fall and Friday nights in the summer. This year they have several Friday, Saturday and Sunday races. I don't have a large house, i have a decent 30x32 garage and 1.5 acres and our property taxes are less than $550 a year.

Its all a matter of perspective. Funny to hear people say taxes are high in MD or DE. I live in New York, i pay 13,000 in property taxes on a small 150 x 50 lot with a 1200sq foot house. ….However I tow 192 miles each way to Cecil county since it has such a great monthly program.

Right?! I thought $4500 for a $498,000 house was a typo,lol. We're paying over $12,000 for the same house in North Jersey! There's a mass exodus from here too.

Can someone steer me in the right direction. I need a few nice towns with some property.
Taxes have to be under $2000.00 a year.

Have you looked through this to see what counties have the highest average house prices and tax rates? https://smartasset.com/taxes/maryland-property-tax-calculator ==> "Welcome to Maryland!"

Oh, wait, I don't live there any longer. tonguue

That's 33% cheaper than Illinois.

Tax rate is lower but I would think property values are much higher so it is still a lot of $$$$.
Not a lot of nice places with a tax bill under $4k, add on state and local income taxes and it gets stupid.
Then the anti 2A crap is the cherry on top.

One thought. When I lived in southern Maryland, 40 minutes from MIR, some regular racers lived in VA just over the border on US301.
King George VA, Dahlgren VA, etc. One guy was no farther from MIR then I was. But I lived in Lexington Park MD, which is out on the peninsula (Chesapeake Bay). Since there is no where to cross the Bay from there, everything is far away. You need to drive almost an hour to start a trip to Cecil, etc.
Should be much less expensive land in King George county VA. Do you need a job, retired, etc.?

There is a small 1/8 mile track in Colonial Beach, VA too. (see map)
And Virginia Motorsports Park (Dinwiddie, VA) is only about 2 hrs from Dahlgren.
Richmond dragway about the same. Summer Duck track etc.

"Welcome to The Old Dominion!"

Yes, I do live in Virginia. wave

Anybody remember that -- or even raced at it when -- Colonial Beach was once a 1/4-mile track? grin (See pic of my old '69 Super Bee below, circa 1980)

I think they got the hint that maybe they weren't really safe at a full 1320 when John Paris (whose house & shop & I used to rent about 25 years ago) ran his Alcohol Funny Car right off the end of the shutdown area when his chutes didn't deploy. eek

Sorry for hijacking the thread... just an interesting little tangent after the Colonial Beach reference. whistling

How is Georgetown, Delaware?
Its 1.45 hours to Cecil County.
Taxes are $1100.00 state tax I presume it means and School tax is $1000.00
County tax is $100.00
Alot of average that I want.

I live near the northern part of the eastern shore of md. About 1 hour from Cecil County dragway. Taxes here are about $2200 a year IIRC. Some areas are even cheaper in taxes. Parts of delaware are just as close with even cheaper taxes

Ultimately, I really want to be about 15 minutes to the beach.
What town is a little more east than Georgetown?
I really would like to be centered about an hour to Cecil County max.

Unfortunately the closer you go to Cecil County dragway the farther you get from the ocean. I don`t know if you spoke of US13 dragway. It is about 30- 35 minutes to Georgetown De. We stop at that track when we go to Ocean City MD.

That will work for me.
Just put in a bid to see if they are negotiable.
If so.
I'll be going down to see the area.
My friend said Georgetown is a great town.

The area around Milton is nice and between Milton and Georgetown is not bad. West of Georgetown is going to put you 30-40 minutes from the beach in the summer. In my opinion living near the beach is really overrated. I lived 15 minutes from the beach and the DAILY traffic gridlock in the summer heck really year round now gets old quick. My best suggestion would be to rent a place for a few weeks in the summer if you can swing it and check out the area really well. Make sure the property you look at is high and doesn't have water issues. If it has a mound system stay as far away as possible.
