==Honestly, that tax rate isn't true - it is almost 2% in Berkeley.
The 1% annual for my property is $3321. Voter added cost add 821.06 for Schools, Mello Roos, Buses and Parks = 4142.56. But they never tell you about the non-voter approved taxes $1577.26 = GRAND TOTAL of $5919.82.
So in the real world, its double. Berkeley tax = 2%.
6 grand is a lil higher than 3 grand and it is closer to 2% than 1%.
