Hi Joe,
It was a pleasure speaking & meeting with you last month.
I know you are considering Eastvale as well. if you decide to purchase a home in Eastvale please feel free to contact me again. Rancho Cucamonga also has great award winning schools! Home prices are also higher than Eastvale. Let me know what you decide or how I might be of further assistance. :)

Hi Joe,
As you see from the comments below the tax rates and school district boundaries are very confusing. I would be glad to provide you a school district map which outlines the various school districts in Rancho Cucamonga. My clients love this tool while searching for homes in the area. I also can provide you with the most current home listings in the districts that you are considering.
Feel free to contact me for more information. I have worked Rancho Cucamonga since 1997!

Oh and my website is a great source for house searching and provides school district information as well. http://www.lindacomeau.com

Hope to hear from you!

There are several award winning schools in the City of Rancho Cucamonga. Los Osos High School has the highest API scores out of all of the high schools. I can speak from personal experience as I have had four children go through Los Osos High School that they received an excellent education and the teachers are very much on the same page with parents in the success of the students. They actually have an online program called "School Loop" where you can communicate directly with the teachers, check your child's grades, quiz and test scores as well as all of their homework assignments. This really helps parents to have a hands on approach. A lot of families really fight hard to get their children into Los Osos High School. My children have also attended Victoria Groves Elementary and Vineyard Junior High School which were both excellent experiences as well. You can also click onto the Chaffey Joint Union School Districts website for more information.

As far as the lowest tax rates, most neighborhoods are at a 1.25% tax rate. There are some neighborhoods off of Daycreek and east of Daycreek that are, indeed, much higher than 1.25%. I have lived in Rancho Cucamonga/Alta Loma since 1977 and am very familiar with all of the neighborhoods where I can advise which neighborhoods do have the lower tax percentage to help save you money.

I am here to assist you and am very patient in showings so that you can find the right home for you and your family no matter how long it takes to find that perfect home. I really fight for my clients and go the extra mile to get our offer accepted.

In terms of low tax rates, older homes will be good here. You didn't mention price range. If you are looking for a large property in a very good school district, Alta Loma has some really nice homes on 1/2 acre lots. Stork Elementary seems to always have a lot of interest. Do you have small children? Please feel free to contact me and together we can map out a plan for you to purchase your perfect home. I am here to help. Sindy Jones 909-230-3179 Keller Williams Realty

The tax rate is low in the area south of the 210 Fwy, north of Baseline & East of about Millikin. I have 2 listings under contract in this little neighborhood where many of the streets are on culdesacs & have a walking trail that leads to Vintage Park & to Lightfoot Elem School, homes don't stay on the market very long in this neighborhood, Google this address 7080 Pozallo Place, Rancho Cucamonga 91701. Pricing in this area is between $260-315K for up to 1760sqft. These homes are built in the early 90's.

3 new listings came up in this neighborhood within the last week & a half.

Shoot me an email if you want to talk about this some more. I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

Good questions, as that is a concern that many of my clients have! Call me, my office is in Rancho Cucamonga, and I know the area extremely well. The school districts in Rancho are awesome, especially the Alta Loma School District! In that area, you'll find a median priced home, lower taxes than the hewer communities, and a safe area. I'd be happy to show you the homes on the market which meet your price range. Let me know when a good time for you would be!

There are some older spots in the Ediwanda school district that do have a low tax rate although remember some of the houses we currently have across the street from Victoria Gardens has a 1.6% rate and some have bonds.
My suggestions is come in and talk to me and my staff and we could better advise you. Raymond Geer 909-935-5001. We are All Nations Realty in the Victoria Gardens. Thank you for your question. Ray

There are some great areas in Rancho Cucamonga with lower tax rates. Obvioulsy the older neighborhoods have lower tax rates and if the homes are further North, they are located within the boundaries of excellent schools! You have to look at tax rate as it relates to the home values. For instance, if you buy a house with a 1.7% tax rate in a great area, but the sales price is $300,000 as opposed to a home in a tax rate of 1.25% with the sales price of $350,000, unless you are paying all cash, the lower price will be more affordable and quite possibly be the better investment. Woking with your Realtor to look at each neighborhood collectively would be the way to go.

You not only want a great location, but that purchase that is going to give you the best opportunity to an equitable position in the future!

Feel free to call me if you have any questions as I have lived in this area and worked in real estate since 1993 and I love to talk Real Estate. 909-980-1818.

Take care and make it a great day! Kelli Vanevenhoven
