    Santa Clarita Real Estate Focus: Property Taxes

    Examine your Santa Clarita property taxes, you may be paying too muchA big focus of real estate these days is property taxes. Real estate values have lowered across the country and subsequently property taxes have lowered too. The tough part of lower property taxes is for local governments, who have far less money to work with thanks to lower collections. On the flip side, homeowners will never mind paying less when it comes to taxes. However, many homeowners are still paying more than they should be, and people around the country are disputing their bills and assessments.

    What can you do to lower your property taxes, or simply find out whether you are paying what you should be paying?

    • Take a good look at the assessed value of your home. Does it look too high? If so you have a red flag right there and should call the assessor’s office.
    • Talk with your neighbors, what are their assessed values? Is yours similar? If not is your home similar? Compare and contrast as much as possible to have a good idea as to where your home stands in your community.
    • Talk with an appraiser, an educated opinion can never hurt.

    Every community is different, but chances are you will know if your home value has dropped but your tax bill hasn’t. As in every situation, you need to be your own best advocate. Do the research and you won’t be disappointed when your hard work pays off to get your property tax bill reduced.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
