When you buy a home, the County Assessor will actually place a value on your property for tax purposes (it is not required that the assessed value be the same as the purchase price, but that is usually the case). Many San Diego communities, such as San Elijo Hills, Carmel Valley, Eastlake, etc. have Mello-Roos or other special assessments that add to your total property tax bill.
For a list of current property taxes for different areas of San Diego visit the San Diego County Treasurer's website.
To find the current property tax bill for a specific property, visit the County Tax Collector's website.

Exclusive Buyer Agents do not list homes for sale and never represent sellers. They have no "inventory" to try to sell you. They can represent you in purchasing any home. They are specialists at representing buyers only on the buyers' side of the transaction. Exclusive Buyer Agents work to get buyers the best price and terms when they buy a home.
If you have excellent credit and plan to buy a home or condo in San Diego County within 90 days, contact Justin Gramm to hire an agent on your side of the transaction. Call Justin at (858) 437-2662 or E-mail.
