There are some great homes that have the Mello Roos Tax including the Echo Pointe at Plum Canyon. I have a client that purchased in that location just a year ago. It sounds as if you have already visited the community and are exploring a purchase there. If so, I would recommend that you talk to their preferred lender who can breakdown the tax basis for you. This way you will have accurate information as it is today for the builder with the sq ftg of the home you are looking at purchasing.

On a side note:
We helped our client compare the purchase of the new home with the mello-roos against an equal valued home.

Home + MRoos + HOA + Tax = What Price
Home + HOA + Tax = What Price.
Then we raised the price of the non-mello roos home to the price of the home with Mello Roos to determine what the best option was for our client.

I would physically visit the schools in both areas. Look at homes in both areas to make sure the home size fits your needs with your budget. Speak with neighbors in each community to get feedback. Study the crime statics in each area. I personnally like Saugus over Simi Valley. To me, Simi Valley is very congested whereas Saugus has plenty of room for growth and development. A huge development is in the works to develop the area west of Magic Mountain. I think it speaks volumns when developers and the city want to pour money into their community during these economical times.

I've lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for eight years now and absolutely love it!

Good Luck! If I can be of further assistance, call me at (661) 255-3335.
