As many baby boomers are beginning to contemplate downsizing, it’s crucial to consider the implications of Proposition 19. Passed in 2020, this proposition holds significant benefits for homeowners over the age of 55 in California.

Proposition 19 allows homeowners who are 55 years or older to sell their primary residence and transfer their current property tax assessment to a new home within California. This transfer can result in substantial savings on property taxes, which can be a key factor in deciding whether to move within the state or relocate elsewhere.

“This proposition holds significant benefits for homeowners over the age of 55 in California.”

For those considering a move out-of-state, it’s important to factor in the potential benefits of Prop 19. The proposition could save thousands of dollars annually in property taxes, making a move within California potentially more financially beneficial than relocating to another state.

Before making any decisions about moving, especially if you’re considering leaving California, it’s advisable to conduct a thorough cost of living analysis. This analysis will help determine whether staying within the state under Prop 19’s benefits is the right financial decision for you.
