Hi Ole Bjorn,

The property taxes vary from home to home. Depending on when the home was built and where it could be any where from 1.2% on the purchase price or 1.9 % on purchase price. In some areas the developers when building homes have add a Melo-Roos tax which gets added to your state taxes and bond measurements.

If you are thinking of buying a home in San Diego County I would recommend that when you start looking in certain neighborhoods ask your realtor if there is a Melo-roos tax and what they think the taxes would be in this area. When you actual get into contract on a home, the seller has to disclose the special tax assessment which will tell you clarily what your taxes will be on the individual home.

Hope this gives you a better idea.

IF your focus is La Jolla (or any well established / older area), then your taxes would most likely be 1.2%. The Mello Roos Catherine refers to is an additional tax on NEW areas to pay for infrastructure such as libraries, fire depts, etc.
