Yes, the property tax rate in Alameda County, and most northern Calif counties, is 1.25% of the assessed value. You can check the county website for more info: http://www.acgov.org/assessor
You can even see your tax bill on line too.

Remember, in California, our property taxes are based upon the purchase price and it will not assist you at all to know what the current owners are paying. Because of Prop 13 (passed back in the 80's), long time homeowners can have very, very low taxes as opposed to a new purchase. 1.25% should get you pretty close to the actual figures.
