The city of Hayward is in Alameda County. The property tax rate for homes in Alameda County is aprox. 1.2% of the assessed property value. In some circumatances however, there are additional fees which are added to a property tax bill. Examples would be if a home is built in a new development. Once you decide on a home, part of the disclosure package which would be made available to you would be the property taxes and any additional fees. Hope you find this information helpful.
Gale Ranch is a very popular area and the homes sell quickly. There are currently only 5 homes on the market in Gale Ranch. Homes in Gale Ranch sell on average within 25 days of becoming active and some sell within 5 days.
Any other questions, let me know.
It's pretty slow at the moment. There have only been 2 homes sold in this price range in San Ramon this year and both are in Gale Ranch, not Norris Canyon or Roubion. There are a few Pending right now but only one is in the area you mentioned (Norris Canyon Estates). Plenty for sale though.
If you want full details, let me have your email address and I'll send them to you. I believe I can negotiate some good deals with Toll Brothers and John Laing homes for buyers, provided tey are not already registered there of course. Let me know if you need any help.... more
