As of last night, the Ridgeview Estates property is on "Hold" status: Hold (06/16/2013). Per the listing, 'Submit' on pets. You would need to make an appt' to view the home, and possession is "Negotiable" -- possibly 2-4 weeks? I hope this helps. ... more

When renting you really do need to be careful with scams, especially when asked for the money upfront prior to signing a lease agreement. Often they will say that they are out of town but will deliver the keys upon receipt of your money.

Barry Shapiro answered:
Bring cashier's checks for a minimum opening bid amount of $1,546,018. The trustee sale is slated for 02/07/13 at 1100am. Contact an experienced agent, so you can determine through the title company if there are any other existing liens. This home was listed over at $2,000,000 recently, but did not sell. Per the MLS, the owner spent over 3.5 million to make this home perfect. In answer to your question, you cannot see the home. If investors buy it at the auction, then you can see it when it gets relisted on the MLS -- over $2 million again... I hope this helps! ... more

Looks like a scam to me: 1) Ann Fallon is not a member of our local Board of Realtors, 2) Ann Fallon is not shown on DRE records as having a CA R/E License, 3) The website does not exist. 4) The address '3077' does not show up on county records. ... more

Tina, the home is currently NOT in our MLS, it was bought in 2008. Please be careful of scams and "IF" it comes on the market, be sure that the current owner is up to date with their mortgage payments. Should you have any further questions, you may call me @ 805.279.0554, or email @ EdithAnaya@aol.com. Take care and best of luck! ... more

MIchelle,

Here's the contact from Postlets. The rent seems much too low for the area, and the undisclosed location throws up some red flags. It might be legitimate, but I would be wary. Best of luck.

View link to learn more about this Mid-century modern Eichler home designed by Claude Oakland. Center Atrium model brings nature into home environment. Multi-purpose open floorplan. Post-and-beam construction w/natural redwood ceilings. Large private yard backs to open space. Located on cul de sac in Thousand Oaks Eichler neighborhood. Eichler homes are from Modernist architecture that has come to be known as California Modern, & typically feature glass walls, post-and-beam construction & open floorplans. Eichler exteriors feature flat or low-sloping roofs, vertical siding & spartan facades with geometric lines. One of Eichler's signature concepts was to Bring the Outside In, achieved via skylights and floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out on protected gardens, patios, and pools. The homes had numerous unorthodox features, incl. post-and-beam construction, sliding doors and cabinets plus a standard 2nd bathroom. The famous Eichler atrium offers an entrance foyer designed to further advance the concept of integrating indoor/outdoor spaces. ... more

Barry Shapiro answered:
Yes.
In order for the amount of your taxes to be determined, the County Assessor must first assess the value of your property. Generally, the assessed value is the cash or market value AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. This value increases not more than 2% per year until the property is sold or any new construction is completed, at which time it must be reassessed. For more information on how the assessed value is determined, contact the Assessor's Office at (805) 654-2181.

After the Assessor has determined the property value, the Auditor-Controller applies the appropriate tax rates, which include the general tax levy, voter approved special taxes, and any city or district direct assessments. The general tax levy is determined in accordance with State Law and is limited to $1 per 100 assessed value of your property. After applying tax rates the Auditor-Controller calculates the total tax amount. Finally, the Tax Collector prepares property tax bills based on the Auditor-Controller's calculations, distributes the bills, and then collects the taxes.

Neither the County Board of Supervisors nor the Tax Collector determines the amount of taxes.

You may take the matter up with the Assessor to see if that office will change the valuation. Additionally, the Board of Supervisors has established an Assessment Appeals Board for the purpose of resolving valuation problems. Appeals on regular assessments must be filed each year between July 2 and September 15 (valuation information is available July 1 at the Assessor's Office). Appeals on corrected assessments, escaped assessments (assessments that did not take place when they should have), or supplemental assessments must be filed no later than 60 days from the mailing date of the corrected, escaped, or supplemental notices.
If you choose to appeal your assessment, you should still pay your tax installments in full by the appropriate deadlines: otherwise you may incur penalties while the case is in appeals. If your appeal is granted, a refund will be issued to you.
Appeals applications and further information about the appeals process can be obtained by calling (805) 654-2251 or writing to: Assessment Appeals Board, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009.
I hope this helps!
