TAXES & FEES
The property tax rate is 1%, plus any bonds, fees, or special charges, which adds up to approximately 1.2% of the total purchase price. (In general, you can calculate your monthly tax payment by dividing the purchase price by 1000.) The tax rates in The Crosby Estates are fairly similar to most cities in California and increase only 2% a year, for as long as you own the home (unlike other states where your home can be reassessed and rates increased as needed).
Most new neighborhoods in San Diego County have Mello-Roos fees, The Crosby Estates included. These fees help cover the costs for new roads, schools, parks, libraries, and other community services in developing areas. For a little history on Mello-Roos fees, back in 1982, state legislators, Sen. Henry Mello (Dem., Watsonville) and Assemblyman Mike Roos (Dem., West Hollywood) proposed a bill known as the Community Facilities Act, which was passed into effect that same year. For the purpose of funding public improvements, this act allowed local governments and developers to create Community Facilities Districts in order to sell tax-exempt bonds, which homeowners would then pay back via a supplemental tax bill. Each home/lot’s Mello-Roos fees differ due to the fact that every home is assessed when it is sold for the first time. The Mello-Roos information for a home is available from the tax assessor and is typically published in the MLS as well.
