Communicating this in the MLS would be one way to do it. Be sure to be clear about what you intend regarding Significant vs. a particular buyer.

The basic tax rate in Riverside County is about 1.05% however each home depending on where and when it was built has additional taxes such as special bonds and mello roos. Each home that you see and are interested in buying has a different tax rate. Your agent should be able to pin point and find out exactly what the tax rate is before you make an offer. Generally the newer the house is the higher the tax rate. Usually it won't be higher than 2% total. ... more

I agree, A third party should be handling the money. I'd walk away from this one unless they can agree to a licensed Escrow company to hold onto the funds.

First of all, your agent should be fighting for you. If the seller does not return your deposit when they should, they can be fined up to $1,000 for not doing so. Usually a buyer has 5 days to approve of any reports after they are received by the buyer. If you did not remove all contingencies, you should be owed your deposit back. Talk to your Attorney, you might be able to file a lien on the home. They might not be able to close escrow until the lien is cleared up. This is not legal advice, just some helpful ideas for you.
Wishing you all the best. I am sorry to hear your story.

Great question! But as my colleagues have said, it depends on the specific neighborhood. The regular tax rate is low, but many neighborhoods have special assessments and bonds that drive that rate up. The bright side is most of these additional fees are for a limited time, maybe 25 years. So if a home is 12 years old, it is half way through the time period and that fee will expire when the time period expires. That means the tax rate will readjust lower.
All of us full time Realtors in the area would love to help you and answer any additional questions you may have! Happy house hunting!

There are great investments in just about any community. Some better than others, definitely. This is a great time to get started investing. Our office has taken on several new investors lately due to the drop in real estate values over the past 4 years.

Hi Larry,

When searching in Corona, it is important that you do your homework. Because the rate of taxation can vary tract to tract depending on the assessments and fees that are piled on top of the property taxes. Before you offer make sure that you know exactly what you will be paying the differences can be nominal or staggering. So, make sure that you see in writing any and all taxes and assessments that are levied against the home you are considering.

Happy home hunting
