Or.... Pickens county has incredibly low tax rates?
Call a random real estate office in the area and ask them to check the property tax on it. Use a friend's phone though....

its not 10%. It’s 10% times the millage rate, which varies greatly depending on county/city/school district.

My mortgage is $650 a month including tax and insurance.

Rent would probably be around $900 - $1000 for a similar home.

Hinky ain’t the word for it, I’m thinking criminal fits better. I’m not that far from Pickens, no way it’s that much less. No way.
