I was told (by a frequenter here by the handle of Ptiemann) that the costs of building a home in the bay area is $450-500 sq/ft. So this kind of blows that away.
If in fact Centrex could build me a home for $100sq/ft in the bay area then by all means, cookie cutter or not, let's do it!
$450-500 sq/ft is the price with land. Since new houses are recently built by large development company, 99% are cookie cutters or so called semi-custom if more options are utilized.

I haven't seen a case where the Mello Roos brought the total property tax bill over 2% yet.
Sample of Property Taxes in Antioch. Yes they can be higher than 2%.
