After prop 13, the state had to have a vote in order to issue "General Obligation" bonds. This was the method used to finance things like streets, curbs and gutters, schools and parks in new developments. In order to promote new developments they passed the Mello Roos bill to provide financing for these items. They are a general obligation of the new homes that were built.
That is what they are how the affect you.
For some reason the typically tend to double the tax rate to about 2.2%.

They are awesome. If you own a home with equity and you are above 62, you can vampirically extract the cash value out of that home drop by drop and never have to pay it back -- unless you sell or move while you are still alive.

I don't think any realtor would be reluctant to share the best opportunities with any buyer.

Hi Sharron. I am a Canadian living in Arizona for the past 3 years. You should really consider financing in Canada as the credit rating system between Canada and the US is not seemless. Hence, the finance rates are higher and most require a minimum 30% down. HSCB has a great international banking system as well as Bank of Montreal for having a US dollar account in Canada. When I purchased my home here in Scottsdale the experience made me feel like a teenager again without a credit card! Best of luck, Diane ... more
