City and County Transfer Taxes
 In Alameda County & Contra Costa County That have a City Transfer Tax

​Both the County of Alameda and Contra Costa County have a transfer tax. The tax is $1.10 per Thousand dollars of the sale price. Normally a seller paid closing cost.

To figure how much you will have to pay take the sale price in thousands and multiply the $ amount above.  Example sold for $452,000 in Oakland.  You multiply 452 X 15 = $6,780.oo  Since this cost is typically split 50/50 between buyer & seller half would be $3,390.oo each.

What are the other closing cost when buying or selling a home?
