Further to Hillbilly’s comments, IBI is not included usually when agents list the community charges. As HillBilly said these can vary substantially between even neighbours.
When you sell a house the price declared is the price that is used to calculate the IBI. My own IBI for a 3 bed 2 bath apartment 200M from the beach is 104 per year and the bassura is 75 euros per year.
However my neighbours – who own a bar and restaurant with 10 letting rooms pay about half of what I do – but they have been in there since the building was built (40 years ago)
My parents who own a large villa in the same area pay 250 per year, and my sister pays 125 for a penthouse suite built 5 years ago.
One other factor that affects the rating is what they consider the level of dwelling. My own one when I bought it was classed as a 7 which is almost a ruin (9is a ruin) and 1 being luxurious. Since doing the renovations this is being reclassified as a 5 – normal dwelling but old building.
They have recently and very unusually had a revaluation of the Cadastral value and have basically been visiting lots of local towns and re evaluating the values. This is part of a drive by either Central Government or prbably the Valencian Autonomy, to raise more money as they are going to lose 90% of their grants this year – they have to get ti somehow and just liek in th eUK it is going to be the property owner who collars it.
– so I expect my IBI bill will rise – but I am sure it wont be on a par with UK.
