Quick Take: Half the Property Taxes

We don’t normally lead with price, but this is almost too good to be true. This beautiful Park Santiago historic home has a Mills Act property tax contract. Basically, the idea is that you get substantial savings on your taxes (on this home we estimate you’ll pay less than half the property taxes you would on a regular property of the same price) and you agree to maintain the property’s historic integrity and put the savings into improvements (which you’d probably be doing anyway). It’s a great opportunity to extend your budget. We estimate that this home at $725,000 with its reduced taxes is about the same as buying a home for $650,000 with the regular prevailing tax rate. Something to think about.

And something to act on. We’re here. We’re ready to give you a tour of this home. Call us today.
