I’m your host, Theodora, and I’m talking to local East Bay real estate broker Doug Buenz.00:41: Hi Doug, it’s great to see you. Today we’re discussing property taxes. Doug, how much am I going to expect to pay on a property tax?00:52: Property taxes in the East Bay area average about 1.2% of the purchase price. So in a million dollar house, you’ll pay about $12000 a year or $1000 a month. The assessed value of the property is typically the sales price. So whenever you pay for the property, that’s the assessed value. Because of Prop 13, the assessed value is limited to a 2% increase per year.1:21: The assessed value as you know in declined market, the market value of the p...

This is a question I get all the time. And I deal with each one differently because each house is unique and special, like your home. How are we able to aim for an accurate value of your home? You spent time and invested in your home so it is fair to ask this question. Let’s consider these things before we put a price on your Pleasanton home for sale. How is your home structure?  Our tendency is to overlook some things when we see that they are already outdated or when they are no longer appealing. When certain things do not utilize their usage, we may start disregarding them. We may even feel they have depreciated or lost their value.  The good news is, some people may think otherwise and will still find these things interesting or important. The good thing about renovating is we are a...
