Property Taxes in Los Angeles County are roughly 1.25% of the price of the home.They are 1% of the assessed value (price paid), plus 2% increase in that value per year, plus locally approved bonds and so on.

Attached is West Hollywood Property Tax website:

Principle + Property Taxes (Monthly)
Monthly HOA
Miscellanous Fees

Your Realtor should be able to give you a break down for monthly fees.

Hi Hannah

Your yearly property taxes on a condo purchased at 380K would be about $4750 a year which is broken down into 2 payments a year....or could be added to you monthly mortgage payment.

I have a really nice prime WEHO condo that just got reduced to 399K that may interest you.
Let me know and I can send you more info on my listing.

If the property is a co-op, taxes may be included in the HOA, so check with your agent to make sure.

Your property tax is always the puchase price multiplied by 1.25%. You can pay in installments monthly or two installments in one year.

@Hannah. There are a few components to your monthly expense, Mortgage payment, Monthly HOA payment, taxes, and insurance. Your Taxes are calculated at 1.25% of the total price (assessed at the time of purchase) this is divided into 2 payments yearly (although some banks can build this in to your monthly payment).

The largest consideration that you should have aside from the mortgage amount, would be the monthly HOA payment for the condo. Full service highrises are seeing some low prices (which would fall within this range), but the monthly HOA can be pretty high. If you go with a low-rise (limited/no service) building, then your HOA should be pretty low...

Check out our website TopLAcondos.com for complete information about each of the West Hollywood condos buildings (including HOA ranges, current inventory, and recent sales).. We are always happy to discuss your options in person as well!

Hey Hannah,

The property taxes on a property in West Hollywood which is LA county would be 1.25% of the sales price. They may go up slightly each year. I always gauge about 3k a year per 250k spent.

If you want me to send you options let me know. I have a condo coming on the market in WEHO.

The City of West Hollywood does not have an "additional" property transfer tax rate. The property transfer tax rate is $1.10 per 1000 as set by municipal code and Los Angeles County. This is from the City of West Hollywood website. It us about approximately $4800. I believe you might have to pay a property transfer tax also.

All answers deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
