Why do some other nearby cities have a lower property tax rate?

Property tax rates vary by city, as do property values. Some cities may have a lower tax rate, but a significantly higher average home value. Also, they may offer no homestead exemption or a lower homestead exemption.  Some cities have much higher sales tax and hotel/motel tax revenue that help fund city services, enabling the city to maintain a lower property tax rate. (Please note, this reflects city taxes only and does not include property taxes levied by school districts or county entities.)
