FAQs Overview | Encino Home Values

What is the Property Tax Rate in Encino, CA?

The simple answer is 1.25% of your initial purchase price.  This is paid twice annually to the County Assessor.  After the first year, your home can be assessed at 2% above your initial purchase price, then taxed at 1.25%.  This continues as long as you own the home and is know as Proposition 13 for the whole state of California.

There are some areas that have additional taxes known as Mello Roos.  These areas would have higher taxes.  Encino, CA does not have Mello Roos.


What is the First Step in the Home Buying Process?

Get preapproved with a Lender.  The very first step in the Home Buying Process is getting Pre-Approved with a lender for a loan (unless your purchase is all cash).  I can refer you to several local, qualified Mortgage Specialists.
