If there are school considerations, think about buying on the opposite side of a block that is in the school district you want. My kids all went to the school we wanted them to go to (open enrollment), but our taxes were only 2/3rds of our neighbors behind us. That saved us tens of thousands. Seriously.
There definitely are school considerations. The wife is a teacher so we’d probably open enroll in her district.
Are there maps or accessible information regarding taxes for cities around here?
