Technology takes hold in real estate, to an extent.

Property Tax Facts For Homeowners Over 55

Senior HomeownersBeing a homeowner in California is no easy feat: while the Golden State hosts beautiful weather year-round for a majority of its residents, property taxes can be excruciatingly high. But if you’re a senior citizen homeowner in California, you’re in luck — the state offers a variety of property tax exemptions for individuals 55 or older.
