Its owners are paying $14,742 a year in property taxes. Go around the corner on the same block to The Plaza Drive, and you’ll see another two-bathroom, three-bedroom home with a similar Zillow value of $2.5 million. Its owners are paying about $5,464 in property taxes!
Welcome to the sometimes strange world of California homeownership, where the time when you purchased your home influences how much property tax you pay (2014 in the first case, 1995 in the latter). Now, thanks to a data visualizer Ian Webster, you can explore the vast tax gulfs among homes in Berkeley and beyond — and if you’re a relatively new buyer, you may get frustrated at how little many of your neighbors are paying.   more...

Introduced on November 3rd, this ordinance will face a vote before the full Board of Supervisors on December 1st.

Proposition 19 Passes, Here's What That Means For Property Owners

Proposition 19 Passes, Here's What That Means For Property Owners

div.a { font-size: 16px; letter-spacing: .5px; line-height: 2; } div.b { font-size: large; } div.c { font-size: 150%; } Photo by Andrea Piacquadio from Pexels Proposition 19 has officially passed! California voters have approved a makeover to the state’s landmark 1978 law to limit property taxes with 51% support. The measure allows homeowners 55 and older, the disabled, and wildfire victims to carry low property tax rates with them when they move. Though, it strips property tax breaks from people who inherit property.
This new proposition is a substantial victory for the California Association of Realtors, who made changes to a similar initiative in 2018 that voters rejected by 20% points. The revamped proposal generated broad bipartisan support and only token organized opposition.   more...

Key Takeaways The predictions today say that 2021 mortgage rates will be around 3%. Comparing mortgage rates to presidential election outcomes is hardly a direct proposition. If Biden issues a shutdown to curb the spread of COVID-19, rates could fall on fears of economic fallout. When you’re close to closing, keep your eyes on daily rates — and be ready to lock when they’re in your favor. What will happen to mortgage rates after the election? If you want to buy a house or refinance within the next few months, you should already be strategizing about how to lock the lowest interest rate. However, you may be wondering, how will the presidential election impact mortgage rates? Rates declined to a record low in 2020, but could a change in presidency cause mortgage rates to rapidly increase like it did in 2016? If you’re planning to buy or refinance soon, here’s what you should know:   more...
